This view opens from a location in Vologda known as Sloboda.
Sloboda must be driven straight to the end of the main street. When you first enter the area, you will see a vista of the Spaso-Prilutsky Monastery.
You can shoot immediately with a telephoto lens, or you can walk across the field and come a little closer.
The first time I visited here was during an attempt to capture a comet on a summer night.
It’s occasionally fun to do the opposite and go somewhere at night first, then during the day. You may see where I walked in detail virtually by touch and be astonished by a lot.
This time during daylight hours I was able to walk to the Vologda River. Of course, there is no way out to the coast itself – impassable thickets of bushes serve as an obstacle.
As it turned out, then at night I almost reached the shore, but it seemed to me that it was still far from the water.
This is a good view, which can be reached quickly and easily.
