I went through the small park to the Mikhail Palace (Russian Art Museum). The Palace and its fencing was in snow and I turned my mind to cast iron flowers. They were expressive.
I came to the Griboyedov Canal. My friend blogger Jason wrote a post about his visit to St. Petersburg, named "Venice of the North" and told about canals. I liked his post and photos.
Opposite the Cathedral of the Savior on the Spilled Blood is the entrance to the Mikhail Garden. Beautiful forged garden fencing was covered by snow too. If you carefully look at its design, you can see the tulips and roses.
There were the mosaic pictures of flowers and birds on the columns near the garden gate.
I decided to go into the garden and take a picture of the fencing and the Cathedral on background.
I had the post 'Autumn in Downtown' with the similar photos, which I took in fall.
Then fog has appeared. Temp dropped up -8 C (14 F), the walkers hurried to their warm homes. Here's a view of the Cathedral and the Griboyedov Canal in the fog.
I stood on the bridge over this canal, and paid attention at the bridge railing. It was very delicate, light, with a few flowers. Flowers looked like climbing roses with opening buds.
When I'd taken pictures on the river Moika, I loved beautiful bridge railing with golden flowers and leaves looked nice even in winter. Perhaps the poet Pushkin drove home here, his apartment had been not so far, now hidden in fog.
I looked at the other side. What a show! In a distance the huge Mikhail Castle disappeared in the fog. Castle’s dark red walls were vaguely visible.
The railing of the nearest bridge over the river Moika looked dark in fog.
I hope the weather will be sunny and clear the next time!
