Photographer's Note

Few days ago I posted an image of the entrance of this church with some priests in front, it was Intercession Cathedral inside Prokovsky Monastery, here I was far of it and got this image at distance. Its ramparts aren't visible here, hidden by the trees.
As you can see this kind of octogonal belfry is very usual in Russia, the central body of the churches are most times a cube but here the top of the domes have different aspect, not like a bulb, but like a golden shield.

Dias atrás eu postei uma imagem dessa igreja com os padres na entrada, era a Catedral da Intercessão, dentro do Convento Prokovsky. Aqui eu estava já bem longe dele e consegui essa foto do lado de fora, as muralhas do convento não aparecem na foto, ficaram escondidas atrás das árvores.
Como vocês podem ver, esse tipo de campanário octogonal é bem comum de se ver nas igrejas russas, outro elemento comum é a parte central da igreja no formato de um cubo, já as cúpulas normalmente tem o topo no formato de bulbo, mas esses aqui eram diferentes, tinham aspecto de escudos dourados.
