During our last day in Moscow of March, we went for a leisurely walk nearby the Moscow River.
It was a fine day with white clouds floating in the blue sky but the weather was too cold and my hands were numb. I could not even talk and was unable to take many pictures. The bitter cold wave told me that the journey ahead would be tough though we had prepared carefully.
We braced ourselves against the chill wind from the peak all the way to the river bank. As we made our way down the bank, I couldn't help but admire the beauty of the snow.
Along the way, we saw a nice ski jump hill
After a long walk down the hill, we finally reached the river bank. I was filled with a soothing sense of tranquility and calmness and I felt so small standing there in the open area.
Looking across the Moscow river is the Moscow Olympics Complex
The snowy scenery literally took my breath away. Despite the bitter cold, I enjoyed walking around from sight to sight and getting the taste of Moscow's beautiful landscape. It was a refreshing change as we never get to see snow in our homeland.
The Moscow skyline from the riverside is amazingly beautiful too.
This is my entry for Skywatch this week. Hope you enjoy these photos of the snowy landscape in Moscow.
