It was very cold winter morning, we have gone on lake Baikal. When we have arrived, I have sharply felt hunger on photographing. I left the car and have started to photograph everything that saw, because knew that we have arrived not for a long time, the car could not be switched off. Photographing, I have seen the man who went for water to a crack in ice (approximately 50 metres from coast). Ice in Baikal bursts from constant small earthquakes. It wanted to me to follow the man and to remove it more close (my lens 18-55 does not allow to increase strongly). I have approached more close, have photographed it and have looked back around, it was wonderful: cold air, round nobody, mountain, transparent ice under me... The Beauty and naturalness of the nature always impress the person, get to it deeply into soul and something switch, update.I still will return there. I love Baikal. Protect its nature!
