Arik77..thank you so much for your comment....this kind of architecture "forces" you to pull out your camera. I wish all my photographs had captured the sky like this one.

Bojtorjan, Thank you so much....I have taken pictures of several of these beautifully architected orthodox churchs in my travel. I'll have to find more to post.

Linny, thank you so much for the compliment....I don't think I've seen on of these type churches that I didn't stop to either just look at it or photograph the structure.

Rescue193uk...thank you so much for looking at my photographs....I wish all of my landscape photograhic attempts captured the sky as this photo did....

RCM...I agree with you..the sky makes this picture I think....I wish all my photographs would capture this kind of detail in the sky.....Thank you so much..

Very nice church with all those different roofs, giving you the idea that it is a lot of small buildings getting close together...

Annaschnitfink....it actually does look like a whole series of buildings pushed together....there are several of these churchs with this same architecture in the area.....I need to find some other examples......

Great looking church, I also like how this church really sticks out under the sky.

OrangeRose...thank you so very much....sometimes we get a bit lucky with the colour of the sky.....this was one of those lucky moments....

there are many new styles of churches, but this one represents the religion
