Want to know all about Sergiev Posad ***CLICK HERE***.
The first plan of the Bell Tower, worked out by the court architect I. Shchumakher, presented a three-tier structure. The construction was supervised by Moscow architect I.F. Michurin. In the process of construction it became clear that the height of the Bell Tower was not sufficient. In 1753 the new project of Michurin's pupil D.V. Ukhtomsky adding two more tiers was adopted. The Bell Tower is built of brick and plastered, the details - cartouches, columns - are of white stone.
42 bells are suspended in the tiers of the Bell Tower. The largest bell weighing 64 tons was cast in the Lavra.
The Bell Tower with a cupola is 88 meters high. As a tourist you cannot enter this impressive building,but maybe you are lucky and might hear the chimes playing a nice melody.

Good POV for a very nice view upwards.
The green blue colour of the facade is unusual (at least for me and for people who live here) but it's so beautiful.
The red vegetation on the foreground adds even more colour to the picture and you framed it well with the leaveless branches of the tree.
Best regards, Paul

altra bellissima immagine di architettura in cui sei un vero maestro. Il Pov č sempre eccellente per dare slancio e risalto ai soggetti che scegli, splendidi ancora una volta i colori ed il cielo.
Un caro abbraccio, buon WE.

Hi dear Sasko, the vertical frame was a perfect choice for this subject. It is amazing how low you manage to make your Point of View, to make this church look even more gigantic. As usual the perspective and slight lens distortion look very artistic and make the shot even more interesting. And the sky is the cherry on the cake! TFS and have a happy evening, Lisa

ormai sei uno specialista nel fotografare chiese.
Riesci sempre a trovare degli ottimi POV e sempre la giusta luce, facendo cosě esaltare la resa cromatica dei colori.

Many pleasant colors on this photograph and a sight in low-angle shot which emphasizes well this church and in particular its interesting bell-tower in the smoothness of its architecture. It does not pass unperceived… Thank you Sasko.
With all my friendships and excellent Sunday,
