October in the eastern heartland of Russia is the ultimate interplay of light and shadow. Even on the gloomiest, rainiest day Nature shining from within, lit up by the golden leaves, whether still on the branches or covering the streets and puddles like the lushest of carpets. And yet, even the warmest and brightest of fall sunshine is sliced through by the deep, dark lines of newly naked branches.
