    We went to the City of Zadonsk on a daytrip yesterday.
    Zadonsk is a religious center for the orthodox, so lots of churches and covents

    Here's a selection of shots (OM-D and various lenses)

    Very nice and clear photos Raf. They are a really different design to churches I've seen, and the gold contrasts well with the sky. Is this in Russia itself?
