I will always remember one episode with young group of tourists from Japan in Kamchatka. When these students arrived to Kurile lake in South Kamchatka Sanctuary one girl took out her cell phone and discovered that there is no reception. She showed the phone to other students and something very interesting started... They all were so excited, jumping around and hugging each other - they were happy that there are still places in our planet without cellular coverage and that they were fortunate to visit a place like that.
According to Japanese students, I am a very happy person. And it is true. Since university graduation I did not live in a city for over a week. Most of my life I am spending out in the nature with only radio reception in the past, and satellite reception now. Even my house here, in the buffer zone of Bryansk Forest Nature reserve does not have a stable land line or cell phone reception. Sometimes, in good weather I do get cell phone signal on the roof of my house. But the signal is too week for 4G internet. Therefore I have been using quite expensive sattelite internet to publish posts in this blog. It is not unlimited, I had to pay for every bit of data send or received, for each comment posted. Over the time, internet became my largest expense...
But recently, one nice company have offered to sponsor my internet. РАДУГА-ИНТЕРНЕТ (Rainbow-Internet in Russian) is specializes on providing affordable sattelite internet across Russia. Their specialist visited my village and installed the equipment and now my internet is the fastest it has ever been.
The good news for my readers are that now, I finally can start a project that I could not afford before. I will start to upload high-resolution images for my readers to use on their computer desktops. Below there are several ones that my readers already requested, but I will continue and you will see more.
If there are some images that you particularly like and would like to see in high-resolution - you are welcome to leave a comment to this or any other posts. Thanks again to РАДУГА-ИНТЕРНЕТ!
Enjoy and contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to obtain a high quality print of any of them or other photos published here, at shpilenok.livejournal.com or at my photo-site shpilenok.com.
