    Chernihiv – the city of parks. 2015.

    ( + )

    Any city, if someone spent a sufficient time in it, could be described by a single word that expresses the essence and the “soul” of the city.
    This word is ‘park’ for the city of Chernihiv having more than thousand years old, located in the north of the Ukraine and a very long time ago
    being one of the centers of the Eastern European statehhod and an outpost of European culture on the western border of wild lands. There is the
    trees, public gardens, squares, parks literally at every step in the city and anyone walking on the street cannot hide anywhere from the
    greenery. It’s so harmonic with provincial serenity of the ancient city, creating a cozy, relaxed atmosphere.

    Winter sun in the cold air can colorize the sky with a variety of colors, creating a picture of the winter splendor. But this New Year’s Eve show was truly magical – sunlight breaking through the stratus clouds in the south-west and colorizing the sky with an amazing alternation of pastel orange and purple-blue bands of varying thickness. Drooping branches of birch trees with this amazing background created an tranquil atmosphere of quiet winter evening. Amazing light show of nature lasted only a few minutes during which it was possible to find a point of shooting, set up the equipment and get this great shot.
