The Church of the Resurrection, known as the Savior on the Blood, was erected on the site where, on 1 March 1881, Emperor Alexander II was mortally wounded by a bomb thrown by Ignaty Grinevitsky, a member of the People's Will organization. The church now constitutes one of the world's finest monuments of Russian mosaic art of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
colours are very nice in this great composition.
I completely failed at photographing this church, Julia. Partly it was due to a very short stop and a very dark, grey day. But even if conditions had been better, I strongly doubt that I would have taken anything nearly this good. Including so much sky and the wonderful small clouds somehow makes the ornateness of the church manageable rather than overwhelming. Excellent! Greetings, Marilyn
