Baikal Ice

The winter of 2018-2019 brought us crystal clear ice. So crystal my jaw dropped when I visited the lake for the first time this year, riding from Kultuk on my studded bike. So clear it was scary to move around and jump over ice cracks. So magnificent I forgot to make a proper panorama, enjoying the ride, only when it was too late and the upper layer melted into a wet/dull surface with puddles. This panorama is from my second ride, taken near the village of Bolshye Koty, after the snow covered the frozen lake, and the top layer mutated into strange groups of bubbles.
