It is very difficult to make an unusual shot of the ice Baikal cave. I was lucky to find it while traveling on a frozen lake
untouched by tourists, "toothy" and therefore very photogenic cave.
There was an idea-to convey to the viewer a sense of presence, interaction with the icy, ancient, pagan, shamanic natural elements.
The cave is like the mouth of a mythical ice monster, swallowed the little man and now trying to eat the Sun.
The "mouth of the ice monster" was actually very narrow, i was afraid to miss the light and sat there for about an hour.
