    Living in Florida, when I see winter scenes, I remember the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita… “Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”

    Thank you for these amazing photographs! Krasnoyarsk is breathtaking, and Siberia itself simply fascinating. Every year when snow begins to fall here in Romania, I get the impulse to look at photos of Siberia :) I would love to see it for myself some day.
