Umbrellas on Red Square

Last fall, during a visit to Moscow, Russia, I was caught in a down pour on Red Square. Because I was traveling on foot, without a rain jacket, I ducked under an alcove to keep me and my camera from getting wet. I had a perfect sightline of St. Basil's Cathedral, where I watched a parade of travelers carrying umbrellas walk across the cobblestone square, with the church looming in the background. In this shot, I like how the colors and shapes of the umbrellas juxtapose with the cupolas on the church.
