Frozen Baikal

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.
