The Duck Tower was erected in the 17th century. Its original name was Granary Tower, due to the granary yard which was located here. It was renamed to Duck Tower, because it was said that Peter the Great liked to shoot ducks from the tower.

Great POV on the tower, with the red patchs that I find it's hard to comprehand what material it was made of? good contrast to the grey clouds.

an interesting and good looking tower with those colourful people at bottom... Great composition. Light is finely managed. The dark tone of sky is contrasting superbly with the rest and added depth to it. Very well done. Tfs.

Hello Sasko, This an elegant looking picture that you have taken of this tower. I like the presence of people in the foreground as it is much better than just a sterile looking building. The dome and the spire of the dome are very attractive with their red and white colors. i think it is funny that they named the tower The Duck Tower with the Tsar using it for hunting duck. Ha ha That is a good one. Regards, and have a pleasant week. Roger

Šta reci sem predivna kompozicija.
Prelep toranj sa masom naroda koji daju divnu atmosferu.
Odlicne boje i oštrina kao i svetlost.
Fin rad i dobra nota.

you were so lucky with the sky: it is dramatic yet the foreground is so well lit. You did a great use of the conditions. I thought the people will disturb but they warm clothes add a cold feeling to the view.
Very interesting piece of architecture.
One more time: excellent reportage from Russia.
