Stunning photographs of frozen lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia will chill your bones

Captured by the Russian traveler and landscape photographer Alexey Trofimov, here’s a selection of stunning shots of Ice at Lake Baikal in the Russian region of Siberia, between the Irkutsk Oblast to the northwest and the Buryat Republic to the southeast. Lake Baikal is the largest (by volume) freshwater lake in the world, containing roughly 20% of the world’s unfrozen surface fresh water, and at 1,642 m, the deepest. It is also among the clearest of all lakes, and thought to be the world’s oldest lake at 25 million years. It is the seventh-largest lake in the world by surface area.

“I was born in 1970 in Bratsk city on the Siberian Angara River’s bank where stands the legendary Bratsk Hydroelectric Power Station. Since my childhood I was interested in traveling. Later in my adulthood taking a photo added in my interests. The general creative interests is a landscape and travel photography. The main creative project is the taking pictures of remote places of Baikal Lake which are difficult of access.”
