Photo of the Day

the Kremlin and the Moscow River, Russia

Moscow, Russia

This Month in Photo of the Day: Travel Photos On the day that I made this photo, it was really cold. It was the beginning of March, but in Russia it seemed like it was the middle of winter. I was lucky and unlucky with the weather at the same time. I was standing on the Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge, and a cold strong wind was blowing, but the same wind drove the clouds in the sky and the ice on the river.
