In my photos I tried to show the atmosphere of the Russian north. This is the village of Varishpelda (Karelia). On the shore of the lake are several houses.
Behind them is Taiga. For many kilometers there are no settlements.
On the nearest islands there are many "dead villages". Once there lived people, but they left.
In the village Varishpelda lives only a priest with his wife.
Sometimes they host guests.
The priest serves every day, despite the absence of parishioners.
