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.

      Superb winter lanscape.
      Old churches definitely are a perfect subject in this kind of shots.
      I really love the light here. Good composition too. Superb.

      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!
