Nobody knows exactly how many churches there are on the Russian land, hundreds of thousands, all of them look fabulous. Their divine beauty both inside and outside inspires viewers, artists and photographers. For several years, Mikhail and Yekaterina, a husband and wife, have been engaged in aerial photography. Using a camera mounted on board of the RC plane, they take pictures of the Earth’s surface from a bird’s-eye view. The most favorite objects of their work are the Russian Orthodox temples, cathedrals, monasteries, and churches.
