Saint Seraphim of Sarov (Russian: Серафим Саровский) (30 July [O.S. 19 July] 1759 14 January [O.S. 2 January] 1833), born Prokhor Moshnin (Прохор Мошнин), is one of the most renowned Russian monks and mystics in the Orthodox Church. He is generally considered the greatest of the 19th century startsy (elders) and, arguably, the first. He is remembered for extending the monastic teachings of contemplation, theoria and self-denial to the layperson, and taught that the purpose of the Christian life was to acquire the Holy Spirit..etc.wikipedia

una blue hour dall'atmosfera molto piacevole.
Mi piace molto la tonalitą che la luce ha assunto sulla neve ed il contrasto cromatico che crea con il blu del cielo.

So you had snow in Greece too!
I like the fine atmosphere here given by the blue hour plus the snow, and of course this white church is very lovely. Well composed and very good lighting management.
