#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Norilsk photographer Mikhail Podolyak conveyed the magnificence of the summer tundra in his photographs. He told the This Is Taimyr where he managed to capture the colorful landscapes.
One of the picturesque places at an accessible distance from Norilsk is located 70 km from the city. This is a rocky canyon of the Bolgohtoh river. People come here for impressions and romance.
“The place is located on the 24th kilometer along the Alykel-Dudinka highway. The trip was planned, with fellow photographer Sergey Dokukin, we spent more than six hours there. We set off intentionally in the evening, the sunset regime was important for us”, the photographer shares.
The walk, he said, was wonderful. Along the canyon, they managed not only to shoot the setting sun against the backdrop of chic relief ledges, but also to eat plenty of blueberries, which have already ripened.
“When we were going home, we also filmed an incredible spectacle. The sun had already set, and fog was rising from the lakes. It spread over the tundra, merged with the road”, the master said.
Recently, Mikhail Podolyak took pictures of the vast flowering Taimyr meadows, shared a photo of June turquoise ice in the lower reaches of the rivers, reminiscent of the northern lights, and a “light forest” that looks like a space object.
