Photographer's Note

This is the Church of the Transfiguration in Kizhi. Kizhi is a very small island in Onega lake. A boat goes there from Petrozavodsk. The church was built in 1714 and it is something of a miracle that it has survived in such a harsh climate. It is made entirely out of wood and has a total of 22 cupolas all covered in wooden shingles.
