Church of Dormition

2008.01.18
pixel
This is listed as the Church of Dormition. It sits in Old Town Kenai about a block from a building listed as the Russian Orthodox Church. The Russian Orthodox Church is much bigger but both buildings have the same spires at the top. I am sure they are in some way related - but don't know the official connection. This one was built in 1846 and has been refurbished I believe in the 80's.

TheCrazyCroat This just went in my favorites. I'm enamored with photography of churches, but it's hard to find ones that speak to me. This one speaks to me. Thank you for sharing it.

MHJphotos What a fantastic looking building! The criss/cross logs, the neat steeple, the white picket fence ... all fantastic.

Maybe you could do me a favor and snap this one when its dusk at midnight in the middle of summer? I can imagine its beauty then too!

Fantastic shot, as always!
