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.
