    Love the angle in the first one. Also, the oblique crosses are really interesting!

  2. Love the blue on blue!

  3. What a unique little chapel. Wonderful photos for this week. Thanks for playing. 🙂

  4. Son preciosas estas pequeñas iglesias tan azules. Me recuerda a una iglesia ortodoxa rusa que visitamos en Junneau en nuestro viaje a Alaska. De dónde es Soldotna? Gracias por visitar mi blog.

  5. Soldotna es muy lejos de Juneau, en la península Kenai, 150 miles al sur de Anchorage. Me gusta su blog. Una vez hace 10 años, visité a españa pero solamente Avila, Madrid, y Seville.
    Creo que pueda ver estoy aprendiendo español!
