Russian photographer, Kristina Makeeva has just come back from a 3 day trip on the frozen Baikal lake in Siberia, and she brought pictures that seem out of this world.
“The thickness of it [the ice] reaches 1,5-2 meters. This ice can tolerate the vehicle of about 15 tons, but sometimes we saw cars that had been fallen down. Ice has different patterns in different parts of the lake. It happens because water is freezing layer by layer. Especially it is very interesting to find a fish or a branch in the ice. The ice in Baikal is the most transparent in the world!”
Kristina says that “Baikal is the most beautiful place in the world,” and looking at these pictures it’s hard to disagree.
