Oh, looks like skies are mostly gray with a wonderful light shining through at times. When I enlarged the photo of a bridge, it seemed to show several cruise ships docked at that port. What an exciting time you must have had to see such wonders … especially the gorgeous domes in your previous post. :)

My mother was born in St. Petersburg, but then it was Leningrad. I will have to look at more of your photos, to get a glimpse of the city.

Loved the shots of Moscow (I've not been there) and can't wait for your St. Petersberg photos (I have been there).

I keep telling my hubby that there are places we need to return to now that I have a better camera. ;)

In pictures such as these, I always appreciate how open waters take the lead of the appearance of the sky. Thanks for sharing.
