I stopped by Red Square today to see the new Four Seasons hotel that finally opened after so many years. The weather was unusually warm and the sky was blue, so I first took a walk in the gardens in front of the Kremlin, where workers were fixing the pavement, and then to Red Square for a look at Saint Basil’s Cathedral as the sun set.
As the Kremlin walls are quite high, it blocks the sunlight late in the day. That leaves Red Square and the base of St. Basil’s Cathedral in shade while the cathedral’s colourful onion domes are still in light.
After the sun set, I walked back through the garden and onto the bridge that crosses the Moscow River between the Kremlin and Christ the Saviour Church. A pinkish color covered the sky above the Kremlin while an orange-blue covered Christ the Saviour. I have posted a few shots from today’s walk.
