Ivan the Great Tower Kremlin.jpg

Kremlin, Moscow, Russia

Even standing far across the square, the 80-meter Ivan the Great Tower is not easy to fit into the picture, even with a 17mm lens and Photoshop's perspective tools.

This tower was completed in 1600 during the reign of Boris Godunov, and for many years was the tallest building in Russia. The adjoining bell tower contains the 64-ton Resurrection bell, only one-third the size of the Czar Bell now planted firmly on the ground with its 11-ton broken piece.
