Catherine Palace, Russia 2014

These images were taken in one of the Russian Cathedrals and I made some abstract changes in the image to express the concept of the light illuminating the darkness.  I chose a warm sepia monotone for my interpretation of these images. 

At the time my husband, my son and I visited Russia in 2014 about 80 percent of American travelers has cancelled their Russia visit.  Most visitors were from Europe and Asia.
