Photographer's Note

The majestic cathedral of Our Lady of Iberia was built in Neo Byzantine style in 1904-1908 on the grounds of famous before revolution cloister called "Nikolo-Perervinsky Monastery".

This monastery is located in the far south of Moscow and I took this picture by accident when decided to change a rout with my wife on our way back to home from our friends. I was almost lost using the small side roads in unfamiliar industrial and residential district which is not so attractive with grey buildings, railways and some transport or industrial companies, BUT, just imagine, how I was thrilled when this majestic cathedral appeared almost from nowhere making the great contrast to the buildings surrounding it… It was as “The Beam of Sunlight in The Dark Kingdom” and I immediately stopped my car to take a picture… I had not tripod this time, but fortunately it was enough light to take a shot with short exposure time.

You can read interesting historical information about the Nikolo-Perervinsky monastery which I posted with this picture at my website: ”Majestic Cathedral at Sunset”

PS: According prompt critiques of Jeremy, Asa and Daniel, I tried to impove my mistake asap and already posted impoved version: Workshop - Majestic cathedral at sunset - Horizontal Skew. Hope that now it is looks better.
