The second and the last photo about Ganina Yama where the last Russian Emperor family was killed. I had specifically cropped the photo to the top of it to underline contrast of golden crosses, black domes and green roof of the Cathedral. The Cathedral is named in honor of Romanov family - Monastery of Romanov Passion-Bearers.
Crosses are maid from the gold and their amount is exactly the number of Romanov's family members and servants and family doctor Botkin.

Thank You All,

класное фото. Я тоже недавно размещал этот монастырь.Только маленькая деталь: убиты они были не там, а в доме ипатьева, тут их останки уничтожали.
Ты был на Урале недавно?

Despite the overcasted sky, the golden crosses can be seen very well. The branch on top serves nicelty as a frame. I can't stop admiring its architecture, and you are right, the contrast of golden crosses, black domes and green roof of the Cathedral look phenomenal.
