Journey to the Solovki

• Solovki Travel

In June 2014 I had a really great trip. The route was a - Moscow - Uglich Kalyazin- - Sergiev Posad - Rostov - Yaroslavl - Vologda - Arkhangelsk - Belomorsk - Solovki - Kem - Monchegorsk - St Petersburg - Moscow. June is not chosen by chance - I would like to go to the north in the white nights, when a very large light day and can be seen as the sunset turns into dawn. Unforgettable spectacle for the photographer. I still dwell in detail on the journey to Solovki. I will not go into a very rich history of Solovki - all this can be found on the Internet, and stupid to rewrite a single one does not want.

Solovki I was 2 times - most recently in June 2014 - the first time in August 2010. In this post I will try to combine these two trips. Photos are from different years and the attentive reader will find a lot of differences.

Especially interesting, in my opinion, looked like the same place in different years. The main focus, of course, will be on June 2014.

So, the night on the train Arkhangelsk - Murmansk and I in Belomorsk.

In Belomorsk has a very interesting church of Zosima and Savvatiy on the banks of the turbulent river Vig.

From Belomorsk every day departs ship Sapphire Solovki.

But this time, the weather spoiled eyes. When I arrived at the dock, the wind and rain nearly horizontal izmatal final. We must pay tribute zkipazhu ship - they have left all arrived on the dock on the street to get wet in the rain, and was invited inside the ship, where it was warm and cozy. We were immediately warned that the ship departure is delayed for indefinite time due to bad weather. The sea is very strong storm. Time I not wasted - it was necessary to dry your backpack and belongings. And to dry off - drenched.

I do not remember how many hours have passed, but still bad, sooner or later comes to an end (at least it should be). The wind abated, the rain has almost stopped and told us the good news - push off. Sea storm specifically, but apparently the peak of the storm has passed and we moved on. As I understand it - this piece of plate designed for a sufficiently large wave.

So, I'm on the island.

Inside the Solovetsky Kremlin reconstruction was in full swing, so I spread photos of 2010.

And then I just give you a number of photos from different trips.

year 2014.

One evening I was able to make those shots. On the one hand the sun is on the decline, but on the other - is approaching thundercloud. The spectacle is not for the faint of heart.
