Hi, my name is Kristina and I am a photographer from Moscow. For several years, I've been traveling to see the ice of the deepest lake in the world—Baikal, and here is the result of my expeditions.

Lake Baikal is the cleanest on planet Earth. It is located in Siberia and is part of Russia. The first time I came here I was breathless. This is why I return to Lake Baikal every year, sometimes several times a year, despite being busy.

Baikal is a very spiritual place where everyone can find inspiration or comfort for the soul. So I found inspiration for my work. Traveling and beautiful places—these are what can really push you to create masterpieces. And nature is the best sculptor. Look at the clear ice, rocks, splashes, snow, and the magnificent sky. Check out more photos from this magical place here, here and here.

I hope this inspires you too! Thanks!

I didn't see her at first,I just thought, what a weird way for the lake to form, and then I saw her, she's blending with the rock formation..

I prefer the ones that just show the landscape itself. Adding humans and props detracts from the beauty, IMO. I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I honestly prefer photography (and most art, really) that doesn't focus on us.
