Churches from Five Russian Provinces from a Bird’s Eye View

PHOTO GALLERY

For several years now, Mikhail and Ekaterina Pogorelsky have been doing aerial photography. Their favorite subjects for their art are the churches and monasteries of Russia, to which they have dedicated a separate Instagram account, ChurchesFromAbove. The photographers have kindly provided OrthoChristian.com with the opportunity to introduce our readers to the beauty of God’s churches, taken this fall from a bird’s eye view.

Their complete body of work is available at the site Aerialphoto.ru.
