Walking On Frozen Baikal, The Deepest And Oldest Lake On Earth To Capture Its Otherworldly Beauty

According to photographer Kristina Makeeva (previously): “Baikal is impressive. It’s the deepest and the cleanest lake on Earth. When we were planning a trip, we didn’t even suspect it is so wonderful, majestic and fairy. We were raptured over its beauty so much, that we almost didn’t sleep all 3 days we were here.”

“Lake Baikal is about 600km in length. The thickness of it reaches 1,5-2 meters. This ice can tolerate the vehicle of about 15 tonnes, but sometimes we saw cars that had been fallen down. Ice has different patterns in different parts of the lake. It happens because water is freezing layer by layer. Especially it is very interesting to find a fish or a branch in the ice. The ice in Baikal is the most transparent in the world! And this is true. You can see everything till the bottom: fish, green stones, plants and bluish gulf. The water in the lake is so clear, that you can see various objects on the depth of 40 meters,” Kristina Makeeva told Bored Panda.

“Baikal is also the deepest lake. The genesis and the age still provoke scientific arguments, so let’s just remember, that Baikal is the biggest reservoir of fresh water on Earth, and its depth is 1642 meters. Apart from Baikal, there are only two lakes that are deeper than 1000 meters: lake Tanganyika (1470 m) and Caspian Sea (1025 m).”

“In some parts ice is slippery like the mirror. You can shoot ideal reflections. A lot of travelers are moving about on skates, bicycles or sledge. Some of them are walking for several hundreds of kilometers and are sleeping in the tents on ice. Marvelous place. Very atmospheric.”

“Ice is cracking all the time. When the frost is very heavy, cracks divide ice on different areas. The length of these cracks is 10-30 km, and the width is 2-3 m. Cracks happen every year, approximately at the same areas of the lake. The are followed by a loud crack that reminds of thunder or gun shot. Thanks to the cracks, the fish in the lake don’t die from the lack of oxygen. Generally, ice of Baikal carries a lot of enigmas, the majority of formations provokes the interest of scientists.”

“Ice on Baikal is there till May. But in April no one drives on it. The bubbles in the ice are developed from the gas methane that is produced by algae. The only river in the world that flows from the lake is Angara that flows from Baikal. All other rivers flow into the lakes.”

“There is a legend that the Father of Baikal had 336 rivers – sons – and one daughter – Angara. All sons were flowing into Baikal to restock the water, but the daughter fell in love with Yenisei (one more river in Russia) and started to take everything from father’s water to her lover. In respond, the father Baikal threw a huge rock into his daughter and cursed her. This rock is called Shaman-Stone, and it is situated in the springhead of Angara and is considered to be it’s beginning. Baikal is the most beautiful place in the world.”

だるまさんは転んでない?何かにつられてロボティックな動きで近づいてくる4匹の猫

0_e7


 まずは1匹、何かの音と動きにつられて1匹の白黒猫がやってきた。その動きはだるまさんが転んだをプレイしているかのごとく音が止まると動きが止まり、音がはじまるとピクッと動き出すロボッティック猫だ。

 そしてさらに1匹、最後に2匹、都合4匹がやってきた。一体何でそんなにギクシャクした動きをしているんだろう?すごくユーモラスで楽しいけどもだ。

“Welcome To The Mystically Beautiful World Of Your Nightmares”: The Superb Digital Art By Stefan Koidl

What is hidden under the cover of night? Who can you meet in a gloomy forest? Whose footsteps are heard behind in a dark alley? Why did the floorboard creak in the empty room?

Imagined? The most terrible things are born not in the real world, but in our imagination. And this guy with the imagination is all right. The artist Stefan Koidl is inspired by the fact that frightens others, and animates in his fascinating works the most intimate fears.

Prepare a night lamp and stock up on sleeping pills, without it you today certainly will not fall asleep.
