This shot was taken on Oktober, 13, 2004.
It is a path in the botanical gardens near my house. There was the first snow in the year and the beginning of Russian winter!
Another version of the photo (wide view) you can see here: "Bloody Autumn (wide view)"
Also you can check out two other photos of the same alley:"Mellow Autumn"
was taken a year after this one (on Oktober, 14, 2005); "Frosty Silence"
was made in winter.
It's fantastic difference between these three photos! Enjoy
