Winter Baikal unique natural phenomenon. I suggest you to enjoy the icy fragments of the finest and deepest lake in the world!
That’s the ice met us in Khuzhir Baikal – the broken snow. Very unexpected 🙂
Surface of frozen bizarrely large chunks of ice
And after we left only ten kilometers from the village we got on perfectly smooth ice
Ice everywhere streaked lots of cracks
Color ice light strongly depends on the space and
Variety of forms cracks creates an infinite number of subjects, and each year they received as different
I especially liked the frozen ice bubbles
some places you can see very large bubbles
Footprints Bigfoot 🙂
Another form of bubbles
Young and the frozen old ice.
Hummocks in a broken ice has a very bright blue color
Well, people for scale
Sometimes pieces of ice washed ashore
And more bubbles
Small icicles absolutely transparent
Small pieces of ice melte to start and stick together, form a terribly slippery and rugged surface
But so look crack after a hot sunny day – there is a lot of small cracks, because of which it will eventually becomes opaque ice
Compare with normal winter ice
Cracks on the big blue ice floe hummock formed because of warm weather
Once I thought I saw all kinds of cracks, Baikal imposes new
Frost is often cracked offset so that the edges are shifted along the old new cracks.
Baikal smiley 🙂
