Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is grand.

It seems an age since my dream trip to Helsinki, Finland, but in fact, it was only 4 months ago! I am now already planning to conquer the next Nordic country on my list – Norway – in summer 2014. Exciting! Anyway, my entry for this week is Uspenski Cathedral, a gorgeous and gigantic orthodox cathedral, set on a hill with an amazing view of Helsinki …
