I also really like the evening light when the weather is like this - from about 4.30pm to when it gets properly dark at about 6.00 it takes on a increasingly rose-tinted, almost Mediterranean hue. This everyday skyline captures a lot of Moscow components - trees, overhead cables, some non-specific vaguely industrial wall, cars (parked on the pavement of course) and silhouettes of both a Stalinist skyscraper and a left over social realist monument.

And -for me- most typically, the reddening glow of thick white smoke from one of the many heating plants spread around the Moscow near-horizon that keep us so warm (and probably the city so polluted).
