About the Photo
This photo I took in Siberia. This small lake is one of four beautiful lakes located near Snowy River at the foothills of Hamar Daban mountains, just a few kilometers from the mighty Baikal Lake (Buryatian side). It was in the late September 2015 and it was rainy and windy for the whole day. I lost any optimism of getting any good pictures on the lakes and was hiking back, then, unexpectedly, the rain completely stopped. I rushed back to the location. Luckily, there was no wind too. Vivid colours of the autumn forest were reflecting in the lake’s surfaces as in a mirror. After taking several photos of this beauty, I had absolutely not regret of being wet and cold for the whole day! The photo was acknowledged as Editors’ Choice by National Geographic Russia website.
