The Holy Transfiguration of Our Lord Chapel is a historic and religious landmark that ties Alaska to its Russian roots before the United States purchased Alaska from Russia in 1867. One is immediately intrigued by the church and its white Russian grave markers in an overgrown cemetery that wraps around the building. The white fence is a critical compositional element to me. I felt a sense of awe, history, and respect looking at the scene. Ninilchick is a tiny settlement that is easily missed from the highway unless one asks and gets directed down the gravel Orthodox Avenue to the church.

A lovely scene Larry with fascinating history connections! Before even reading your description I was thinking that the fence and the crosses made for vital components within the image! Nice work Larry!

Kind Regards

Alf, Thanks for visiting and commenting. I am going to post another view of the cemetery as well. It was fun walking around this placing looking for the best angles to photograph. I appreciate your agreement about the fence. Thanks, Alf. Larry
