The light zvon here is described on our page for YAROSLAVL - 2.

A page with four photos of the Monastery (click each to enlarge); all show the main bell tower, though three of the four appear to show it empty.

The main page of a group about the Monastery; click the photo at the top for a larger view of the whole area.  It's not clear whether the heavy zvon and the light zvon are both in the main bell tower, or whether the light zvon is elsewhere in the Monastery grounds.

Several professional photos (Russian language pages) show the bell tower, a view from the Kotorosl River and a view from the belltower along the river.
