Daytime view of the towers and domes of the Kremlin complex seen above a tree-line.

"The heart of the Moscow Kremlin, seen from across the Moskva River . . . Late [in the] afternoon on a bitterly cold winter's day [in 1956]. Spotlighting sunshine filtered through clouds heralding the season's first snowstorm, to give the pyramided Cathedrals, Towers and Palaces the Babylonian look that belongs to the Kremlin alone." The Kremlin, p. 170.
