Autumn Blue and Gold

The sun polished the remaining yellow leaves those humble street trees to pure gold, set against the patina blue domes of Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Church in Carnegie, and all set before a perfect blue autumn sky.

Wish I’d had my better camera with me, and I might have captured more detail, but this is very nice.


Blue and Gold: 2011

turquoise and gold church domes

Blue and Gold

Barely a wisp of a cloud in the sky behind the turquoise-finish domes of Holy Virgin Russian Orthodox Church in Carnegie, the three-bar crosses finished with bright gilt. They just finished the “finish” last fall and it still looks brand new.

One dome really is taller and larger than the other, and note that it also has a lightning rod attached.

Here is a post from this spring of both Eastern Rite churches on Mansfield Avenue in Carnegie: Domes. These same domes look a little more saturated blue in the spring sunlight than they do here in the summer afternoon.
