...view of the fortress.
The Peter and Paul Fortress is the original citadel of St. Petersburg, Russia, founded by Peter the Great in 1703 and built to Domenico Trezzini's designs from 1706-1740.From around 1720, the fort served as a base for the city garrison and also as a prison for high ranking or political prisoners. The Trubetskoy bastion, rebuilt in the 1870s, became the main prison block. The first person to escape from the fortress prison (now an important destination for tourists) was the anarchist Prince Peter Kropotkin in 1876. Other people incarcerated in the "Russian Bastille" include Shneur Zalman of Liadi, Tsarevich Alexis, Artemy Volynsky, Tadeusz Kościuszko, Alexander Radishchev, the Decembrists, Grigory Danilevsky, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Mikhail Bakunin, Nikolai Chernyshevsky, Leon Trotsky and Josip Broz Tito.[wikipedia]

An excellent photo with the lamp in the FG and the Fortress in the BG. What really intrigued me is the sky and the partial walkway with railing. Great positioning.

A very well chosen pov which makes the best possible use of the converging lines of the fencing and the strongly positioned vertical lamp post.
The warm colours in the sky give a most romantic atmosphere to the b/g.
My warm regards,
