Baikal Lake

A low, northern sun provides little warmth in this photo of Olkhon Island, on Baikal Lake (Russia). Photographer Alexey Kharitonov notes that the scene is near a small settlement named Uzury and adds:

This name spells almost like russian word “uzory” (uzo:ri), one of the meanings is “tracery” – the tracery of Baikal ice, cleanest in the world. March, early morning, –25C.

    Trying to fight the heat photographically, huh? 😉

    Nah. I’m more a physics-oriented kind of guy. Termical balance, phase transitions, that kind of stuff (i.e.: ingest cold beverages and icecreams and let water vaporise from the skin, preferably with the aid of a cool breeze). That’s what works for me. Suggestion? Not much. 🙂
