Urbex- Suntazi Orthodox church, Latvia

Suntazi Orthodox church was built in 1909, but it was destroyed during the WW II and was never really rebuilt. For some time Soviets used it as a warehouse. Till 1940 it was very active educational and cultural center in this parish.  
Angry looking dog from the nearby apartment house met us on the stairs of the church, but we could get in from the other side, but it is totally destroyed from the inside.  In the archive of the National Library I could find an image how it looked before the WW II.

The blood moon in Lithuania

Back from the vacation - 8000km by car and 1400 photos. Of course, part of them are family snapshots, but still many images to work on.
Already second time we were greeted by the blood moon on our way to Latvia. The first time it was a few years ago in Poland, but it was on the highway, so no way to stop and to make a photo. This time we were already in Lithuania and we were lucky to find some countryside rode to make some images. It was not so large any more, but still impressive. As a tripod I used our car's roof.
