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.

The photographer explained that the phenomenon appeared after a big amount of rain and stormy weather broke the lake out and drained most of its water. At the same time, a nearby lake rich in tea tree oil and coffee rock ran off into Lake Cakora, creating this beautiful image of a tree.

In an interview with DeMilked, Derry said he got into photography three years ago, and has been very passionate ever since. The photographer says he gets inspiration from nature and the way it can create amazing masterpieces from from the elements.

“I love being able to find the spots from above where most people don’t get to see and I also love being able to share my way of seeing the world with the world,” explained Derry.

To capture the photos, Derry says he used a DJI Mavic Air 2 drone. Derry says that the spot has a very dystopian feel and he’s amazed how it still manages to feel different each time even after 6 months of photographing it.
