Telneted photographer from Moscow Christina Makeeva has something new for all of us – amazing photos of icebound Baikal lake. When you see these images, you almost feel those coolness and freshness of the blue ice.
Baikal is the pride of Russia – the deepest and cleanest lake in the world. In winter it turns into the giant crystal when you can see the bottom of the lake with fishes and green stones even when the bottom is 40 meters deep.
The thickness of the ice here may reach 1,5-2 meters but you can’t believe it because the ice is impressively tranparent.
The ice of Baikal is very hard, it is able to withstand vehicles with mass up to 15 tons.
Animals and plants get oxygen through the cracks on the ice.
