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.
