Sunrise over Russian hinterland
Somewhere in the Moscow suburbs is the picturesque valley of the Istra River. Fogs often occur here in the mornings, and in the vicinity is located one of the most beautiful monasteries in the country - the New Jerusalem Monastery. At dawn, the sun's rays flood the valley with light, and the outlines of the Russian hinterland emerge through the thick fog. These places leave powerful impressions for a long time!
