more autumn skylines

The light at this time of year in Moscow is just fabulous. Rich orange (and slightly purple) evening skies, strong enough to make the buildings glow red as the sun goes down.

Off to London for a week (to see my lovely daughter off to Australia where she has a new job, sob!)  Looking forward to it; still in a bit of a limbo about being back here. Weird to simultaneously feel not very settled, but also more at home.

Probably quite normal.


  1. Hi Accidental Moscovite!

    I appreciate your interest in light. www.timeanddate keeps me attuned to the rapid light changes here in St Petersburg. A Tuscany photographer said the light in that part of Italy makes it special.


  2. Hi! My name is Yulia Amlinskaya, I´ve just become a follower of your blog. I´m a Russian teacher in the Spanish Embassy in Moscow and last year I created a blog called Russificate, it´s destinated to all Russian language learners, it´s the best Russian language teaching blog 2010! I´ve already added your blog to my bloglist, could you please do the same if you like my site and find it useful?

    Thanks a lot!
