Situated in southern Siberia, Russia is one of the largest fresh-water lakes in the world. By sheer volume alone, the lake makes up 20% of the world’s unfrozen fresh surface water. Photographer Кристина Макеева recently took a trip to the lake and took advantage of the stunning scenery by photographing everything.
Reaching depths of 1,642m (5,387 ft), this lake is also of the deepest in the world. With that, Кристина Макеева visited the lake with a team of others just after a recent freeze. The enchanting scenery had to be photographed and the results can be seen below. You’ll notice that the team managed to shoot the bubbles underneath the icy surface – this is caused by methane escaping from the lake bed, created by microorganisms.
