Baikal Zen: Rare Phenomenon Makes Rocks Look Like They Are Floating Above Water


savva_25

Lake Baikal in Siberia is the deepest freshwater lake in the world, and its particular relationship to the land that surrounds it produces fascinating natural phenomenon—frozen waves of ice, ice caves dripping with long fingers of icicles, frozen methane bubbles, and something called “Baikal Zen,” which is the balancing of rocks on thin pedestals of ice.

It happens from wind whipping across the lake and around the rocks, carving the pedestals with a slow and persistent determination. May we all balance as effortlessly this year.
