Photographer's Note

This shot was made on a small island Paley in the Onezhskoe lake. Onega, like natives call it, is a huge northern lake, full of coves, peninsulas, islands made by glacier passing by. The water is full of boulders and fish. There are cliffs, pines and a clowds of mosquitos on its shores and islands.
I was in the northern part of the lake. The water is always calm there and the sun goes away only for 2 hours at night in July.
There is a monastery on a Paley island. It was founded in the 10th century and was very rich a few centuries ago. But now it is just an island with a couple of ruined buildings on it. 3 monks live there and build the monastery from the beginning.

There will be a few more photos from this place on TE. Hope you'll like them.
I didn't do any color correction at this shot and others from Paley.
