This is a panorama of icebound Kronotsky Lake, and behind it you can see Valahinsky mountain ridge. Unfrozen blue patch of water on the picture is the Kronotskaya River head, it does not freeze even during the coldest winter nights. The tiny houses on the right is the ranger station "Istok" (meaning River-head in Russian). It is the closest human house to my station, 20 miles away: another park ranger is living there.
A couple of months ago I would not pay much attention to this photo, but today, when I'm forced to stay inside avoiding humidity, heat and mosquitoes, winter scenery looks appealing.
