The Cathedrals of Helsinki
The Uspenski Eastern Orthodox Cathedral (Uspenskin katedraali) rests on top of a small hill looking over downtown.
With a good view of The Helsinki Cathedral (Helsingin tuomiokirkko or Suurkirkko - Lutheran Evangelic) across the way. The rest of the pictures in this post are from this other cathedral.
I would like to acknowledge the good weathermen of Helsinki for predicting rain the entire time I was there and instead providing me these wonderful, varying skies to shoot against.
A peek between the columns
The Resurrection. Another mural next to it depicts the crucifixion, but my shot wasn't as detailed as I'd like it.
I wish blogspot would let me arrange these pictures so they lined up. Oh well.
