Photographer's Note

A zoom shot, with a 210 mm lens, of the blue trolley car, that regularly climbs to the top of the hill overlooking Vladivostok. I also liked the gold cupolas of the church, & the green turrets on the castle like building at left. For a wide angled view, from the summit, please see the workshop. (if you look closely, you'll see the green turrets far below)

This is a wide-angled view workshop

From Maria Lebedko / W.S.U.: "A cable car can take you up along the funicular rail constructed in 1962: it offers a breath-taking view of all of central Vladivostok. The Funicular provides a shortcut from Pushkin Street up the precipitous slope of Orlinoye Gnezdo (Eagle’s Nest) Hill to its spectacular overlook. The name was earned when the first settlers climbed to the top of the hill and there found an eagle’s nest with the eaglets still inside."
