At the end of the day

Church of martyr Nikita.
Ordinary story of Orthodox church in Moscow: It was constructed in 1517, then old church was reconstructed in 1751 and kept its appearance till our days. It was closed in 1933. Communists used it as a ware house. The building was returned to Orthodox church in 1994 and the masses started in 1997.

I was caught by the intensive color of the building. It is painted in rose, which looks rather aggressive in day light, but gives fantastic color tone at the end of the sunny day. I was lucky to make photos at about 12pm and 8 pm. Beauty.
