Lake Baikal is still the pride of Russia and the deepest and cleanest lake on the planet, about 19 percent of the lake fresh water is contained in this lake. Its purest water creates an incredible world in winter when the lake at one moment is covered with ice crust. The methane and oxygen bubbles from the plants freeze up momentarily, creating an incredible 3D model of the cosmos. Cracks, hummocks, splashes in the grottoes on the shore - it is so unique and beautiful that it captures the spirit.

I want to appeal to all tourists and residents so that they keep this clean corner of nature whenever possible, it is unique, beautiful and amazing. It would be very pitiful to lose him.

It's very, very frozen. Like 5 meters solid frozen. At least.

Love the play with density vs light in this piece- I had a real moment of discovery when I understood the composition

I never really considered bubbles when thinking about frozen lakes. They're so beautiful. These photos are unlike any I've seen. Just so pretty.

Love everything about this--but could do without the vehicle. Just leave puppers in the pic and it's perfection!!

It looks like the prow of an ancient ship crashing through the ice that became fossilised into stone.
