For 2018 our Desk Calendar features 12 images of the Golden Ring by the accomplished photographer Nikolai Sapronov. It is printed on glossy card stock and features a sturdy “tenting” design, color coding of major holidays, and bilingual month names. It won’t take up much space on your desk (4x6 inches), but it will surely add a touch of Russian flavor! And the beautiful images will have you itching to return to Russia.
Sapronov's images extol the beauty of the smaller, lesser-known towns in this romantic, beautiful area of Russia, showing glowing sunsets, foggy rivers, and beautifully situated churches.
About the photographer: Nikolai Sapronov lives in Moscow and specializes in landscapes and architecture – things, he says, “that make people love their planet.” He also organizes photo tours in Russia and abroad, and is the organizer (and one of the main photographers) of the photo exhibition “Russian Soul.” Other examples of his work can be found online at 500px.com/nikolaysapronov.
