The Domes of St Basil's Cathedral
St Basil's Cathedral is a highlight of Red Square, its multi-coloured onion domes turning it into a fairy-tale castle, straight out of a Disney cartoon. It's only when you look closer that you see the details, the gilded fretwork, the painted flower scrolls, and the delicate shapes formed by the brickwork.Then there the different shapes of each dome, each with its own colour scheme.
A grey autumnal day burned away into broken blue skies as we circled the building, suddenly turning dull colours into fiery brightness.
