The Russian Solovki Islands are home to the Solovki monastery. It is located in the middle of the White Sea - deep in the Russian North. Since the days there now are the shortest days of the year, it is possible to take photos only for a couple of hours, so the photographer - Petr - was very worried he would not have enough time to take his photos in the two days he planned to stay there. No worries - photos went very nicely and here they are, thanks to Petr we can enjoy the Northern beauty of this place.

Great photos! Look at the size and fit of those stones — this place was built to last. With today’s power machinery it’s easy to forget that back then it was all built with human and animal labor, and human ingenuity.

Wiki article on the monastery: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solovetsky_Monastery Quite an interesting place.
