Mikhail travels to these places every year, watching how the water grows in layers – one year the river glacier is larger, the next year it is smaller.
“This year, unfortunately, it’s not so big. In the past, in some places it reached two or three meters in height. This spring it is more modest. But it’s still very interesting to watch it all. Every year everything is new – the glacier is formed differently, the river bed changes. This has its own beauty. Beautiful ice, beautiful saw cuts – it’s like the northern lights. You look – and you can’t see enough”, Mikhail Podolyak shares his impressions.
The photographer plans to take pictures on the Daldykan river as well – the ice has not grown there this year, but a very large layer of compressed snow has formed, in some places about six to seven meters high.
“Such a giant wall of snow! Very beautiful place, but very far to go. All along the tundra on foot back and forth. I plan to go to the Bolgohtoh river canyon, to the Boganidskoye lake – this is between Alykel and Dudinka. Ideally, I would like to get to lake Lama”.
The photographer also dreams that luck would smile and he would be invited to visit the Putorana plateau waterfalls. He will not refuse such an offer and is ready to share professional pictures.
Earlier, Mikhail Podolyak shared pictures of an impressive light ‘forest’, and another well-known Norilsk photographer Alexander Haritonov shared the aurora borealis shots.
