There are very few occasions when a camera ceases to work. One is physical damage. The second is temperature. Welcome to the Moscow set: a series of images captured in the midst of the Russian winter. One has to admire how Muscovites and Russians in general handle such intense weather. There was no point in which it was comfortable enough to deploy a tripod and wait for the perfect moment. After only 2 minutes of looking for angles you are ready to move on and head for the nearest cafe – with or without your gear. Yep, it is THAT cold, and it was only after several “ERR” messages that the camera began to work.
Everyone knows that Moscow is a fantastic sightseeing destination. The Orthodox churches are amongst the most impressive, especially the famous Saint Basil’s Cathedral, which is represented in this set with a twist from its original colours. The parks – most of them with attractions – are fun to explore: you can find a rocket in one of them, and a tank in another. The Moskva river and the various bridges crossing it are a source of many panoramic views that come alive at night. Should you choose to visit Moscow though, it is advisable to select a month slightly warmer than January for your trip (provided you are not a native Siberian of course).
