Photographer Kristina Makeeva traveled to Lake Baikal in southern Siberia, which is the deepest freshwater lakes with depths reaching depths of 5,387 feet (1,642 meters) and freezes over to a thickness of 5 to 6.5 feet.
The photographer describes her experience on Bored Panda: “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 sleds. Some of them are walking for several hundreds of kilometers and are sleeping in the tents on ice. Marvellous place. Very atmospheric. Ice is cracking all the time. When the frost is very heavy, cracks divide ice on different areas.”
