I especially like this shot, Ainars, of the church in its wooded setting. Marilyn

If we can trust a legend, this wood church was built without using metal nails.

Cheers, Ainars

As, according to legend, was this one north and east of St. Petersburg. I seem to have taken down the other one or two photos of it that I had posted. I'll look to see what else is on Panoramio, and maybe I'll put them back up.

Cheers, Marilyn

Tnx Marilyn, I will try follow Your links and portfolio!

This story happen with me again and again, where one photo leads me to read later another information source, where (while read) I getting inspired to capture new series of photos.

For example, recently I discovered small wood church at country site. From available articles I read, this church history are very tight connected with baron (noble) Lieven family stories and even more, with plenty of interesting details in whole Europe history. :)

Cheers, Ainars
