Photographer's Note

I found the inner yard of the Smolny Cathedral looking very romantic in the dusk covered in deep snow with its stunning bright blue and white colors matching amazingly those of the sky and snow.

Buit in 1748-1769 to the design of Bartolomeo Rastrelli near the Smolny Yard, the cathedral was closed in 1923. From 1982, the building is used for exhibitions and concerts of Russian church music.
