I love this statue and the way the light falls on it make it seem quite magical

My WordPress journey began as a chronicle of my life and travels on the bike. The bigger, planned trips, and the smaller, more spontaneous ones. As I ride along, I never know when something is going to catch my eye, and inspire me to pull over.
Sometimes I work hard to capture what I see and sometimes I get lucky and the first shot just works. Other than conversion to B&W, this image is exactly as it was when it came out of the camera.
Let me know what you think and come visit me sometime at Life on The Bike.
When we were traveling in northern Norway in February 2016, I noticed this light beam breaking through the dense clouds.

In July, my family and I spent a few days in St. Petersburg, Russia. This is the Kazan Cathedral, a functional Russian Orthodox Church styled after St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. I tried to go for a unique angle and was lucky enough to catch a plane in the background; an interesting juxtaposition of historical architecture and modern technology!
