Now here's a pretty place. Red Square on a balmy summer evening in early August was certainly a highlight on my 2011 trip to Europe.
Capital cities are always showcases of a country's history and grandeur. Moscow's Red Square is no exception and St. Basil's Cathedral is the jewel in that cities crown.
The Rule of Opposites
This photo was made at sunset with the aid of warm, soft light illuminating the cathedral. The cool blue of the sky shows rain clouds on the way. And it's the contrast between the warm and cool colors that really bring the scene to life. It's the dance of light at days end.
It's amazing just how beautiful St. Basil's Cathedral really is. The intricately shaped columns and domes really soften what is otherwise a beautiful, but quite hard place. It's a dash of sublime beauty, a touch of the feminine within an otherwise masculine environment. Again, balance and harmony are provided through the contrast of opposites.
