Saint Mary's Church in St. Petersburg

I was on a Baltic cruise and we were docked in St. Petersburg. A few blocks down from our ship was this beautiful church. I was able to visit the church on my own time, but the light wasn't great. I was sitting on the ship editing pictures, when I looked out the window that evening and saw the wonderful light on the dome. I ran out on deck and got the shot (and it doesn't have thousands of tourists in it).
