Lake Baikal is known as the oldest and deepest lake on Earth, containing 20 percent of all fresh water reserves. The water in the lake is so transparent that individual stones and various objects can be seen at a depth of up to 40 meters. In winter, this place turns into a kingdom of ice of various textures and shades from milk-white to emerald.

I was born in 1981 in Moscow region, Russia. I'm an amateur photographer, a programmer by profession. I became interested in photography in high school under the influence of my friends. My favorite genres of photography: landscape, macro, travel. I love to travel and try to convey through photography the atmosphere of the places where I manage to visit. I participated in several collective photographic exhibitions in Russia and have several awards from FIAP salons.
