  Happy New Year

I wish everyone a happy New Year 2013.

Here's a bit of Russian golden splendour to enjoy.

Isaac's Cathedral, detail

It's a ceiling decoration of a side chapel from the Isaac's Cathedral in St.Petersburg. And not the only gilded bit in that one. But other than the kitschy souvenirs, it's real gold this time.
