A frozen world

By Johnny Haglund, Monday March 13, 2017
Massive ice around the harbour on Olkhon Island. On this assignment, I feel it is very important to capture the atmosphere of the island and the lake. This is winterland, and my photos need to show exactly that. Taken on an EOS 5D Mark IV with an EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens; the exposure was 0.4sec at f/8, ISO 640. A tripod was used.

It’s spring in Europe… but not in Siberia, at least not along the shores of Baikal. The whole lake is still frozen and the roads are made on the ice. In some places we have measured the ice and found it to be more than two metres thick; still accidents can happen quite often. Like when there are weak areas on the ice and cars – in many cases driven by drunk drivers – fall into them.

I have been on the ice for about two weeks now, driving from the far south of Baikal to the far north of Baikal. So far, we have experienced minus 30 degrees Celsius on only two days. Mostly it’s been around minus 15 to 25 degrees.

As a photographer, it’s not very difficult to enjoy a trip like this. There are massive ice sculptures in many places as well as high mountains covered with snow and pine trees along the shores and several small villages, some of which abandoned.

One of the most popular places among the surprisingly high amount of tourists – who are mainly Chinese and Russian – is Olkhon Island where these photos were taken.

Looking for the way. It’s not easy to navigate on the ice. Here we’re trying to find the way further north from Olkhon Island. Taken on an EOS-1D X Mark II with an EF24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens; the exposure was 1/2500sec at f/2.8, ISO 100.
