Red sky at night
I took this picture of Moscow, where I live, during evening drinks with a friend at the rooftop Kalina Bar. We arrived at sunset and I immediately went to the balcony to shoot the view, because when it’s getting dark, you can lose the shot if you wait for a couple of minutes. The view was so incredible that even a good shot can hardly convey its beauty. For me, the highlights of the photo are the illumination of the Radisson Royal Hotel and the beauty of Federation Tower East – the highest skyscraper in Europe. I find this juxtaposition of classical Stalinist architecture and 21stcentury glass skyscrapers very striking.
