The project called "Lost Chukotka" is an attempt to preserve the history of Chukotka of the twentieth century. This land used to have its settlements, its own culture, industry, military power, it was the place where many people tried to survive. Today these places are history. Besides there are no many people left
who can tell about this land, the land which is grown with tundra today. One photographer, who lives in Anadyr, Chukotka, has presented some photos of the land and called the project "Lost Chukotka". He was striving to visit as many Chukotian places as possible and show them to the world.
Recently there were many movies filmed in this mysterious land where the clouds fly so low and the skies seem so distant. Mountains are so high there but when you’re drawing near them you see that there is no chance to climb them at all.
And water that turns to all the colors of the rainbow depending on whether it is morning, daytime, evening or night. You have never seen place that is more beautiful than this secret land. Welcome, it’s Chukotka.
From time to time we publish shots of Russia made from satelites gathered from different places. Today just a few. The first one is the Black Sea - the warmest sea in Russia also bordering Turkey and some other countries. You can see millions of tons of floating plankton. There is an interesting detail about Black Sea. It is also sometimes was called Sea of the Dead in the history. It was so because of it's bottom - there
are no any life forms at its bottom because of the vast amounts of hydrogen sulphide coming out from the holes in the bottom and gathering in masses on the bottom thus not letting any plants or fish to grow there. This hydrogen sulphide is a very easy inflammable gas. So during some strongs storms, like back in 1927 it came out to the surface and was ignited and the sea surface was on fire!
