The river-boat station was founded in 1970 on the spot of Ozernaya quay. It is intended for passenger traffic and river cruising boats’ mooring. At the season’s peak river boats often make fast at the Utkina creek also. In summer you can see a great number of tourists who drive up to the river-boat station in big comfortable buses. Some of tourists immediately drop in at their boats, some of them take a slow walk along the wharf, waiting for the cruising boat departure and enjoying their free time. After departure the boat put out to river Neva up to the lake Ladozhskoe. There are plenty of interesting cruises including tours to Valaam, Sortavala, Kizhi, Petrozavodsk and others. And all of them begin at the river-boat station.

When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    Useful Guidelines on Shooting with Ultra Wide Lenses

    Wide-angle lens are further divided into sub-classifications: Wide, ultra-wide and ultra-ultra-wide. Based on current standards, wide lenses for 35mm cameras are those with focal lengths ranging from 24 to 35mm. Lenses are considered ultra-wide if they have focal lengths from 17 to 21 mm, and ultra-ultra-wide if from 12 to 16mm. The New Russar+ is a 20mm lens; hence it falls under the ultra-wide classification. If you have an ultra-wide lens or if you intend to get the Russar+, you might as well make the most out of your precious investment. Read on for a few guidelines on shooting with ultra-wide lenses.
