Red sky at night

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Postcards - Mikhail Gerasi­mov (@shtoza­misha) works in bank­ing in Moscow

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.
