Russia, Altai Republic, Verhnee Krepkoe lake
I captured the moment when first rays of sunlight touched the mountain range, revealing its texture. The morning was quite cold, grass and flowers were covered with a frost. At the right you can see small colored dots - tents of our group, which allow to estimate the scale. So began one of the longest and most difficult days of my life, nearly claimed life of best friend.
