Borovskiy monastery

100km to the South-West from Moscow and you are in a calm and filled with history place - Borovskiy Monastery founded by saint Pafnutiy in 1444. Many people from all over Russia come here in search of peace in their minds and health in their bodies with the help of confessor Vlasiy.

Btw all of the photos were taken with Fuji X-E1 and 50mm (in 35mm equivalent) Fujinon lens without any preparation or tripod.
