Today’s photo of the day comes from San Francisco based photographer, kellinasf. I love this photo because it’s the conventional image of a beautiful landscape, and as one Flickr user comments, “looks like an image one would find in a children’s story”. The photo was taken on Kihzi Island in Russia; a 7km long and .5km wide island accessible by boat from the town of Petrozavodsk.
Kihzi Island is a UNESCO world heritage site, and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Russia, but has no lodging for overnight guests. The island features an ensemble of wooden churches, chapels and houses – including the 22-domed Transfiguration Church.
