Church of the Intercession of the Mother of God on the Nerl. An absolute masterpiece of Russian architecture is the Church of the Intercession on the Nerl. A rare monument of architecture of the pre-Mongolian period. The church is filmed at sunset in the summer. Quite an unusual shot, usually it's prefered to shoot it in spring or autumn - on "high water", and from another facade. This picture is not so spectacular, but good light and the shape of the clouds, as well as the nice summer greens in front, justify such photographer's decision, and the picture turns out to be quite non-standard.
