When I see awesome photographs of my lovely Yakutia, I have a strong feeling to not say anything, apart from one sentence, «Enjoy Yakutia! Pictures explain everything!»
In this post, I would love to say something similiar, «This is the Lena River! Enjoy its beauty!» and that’s it. But it might sound unfair to you and Dina Khandy, who took these photographs during her 2-week river cruise on the Michael Svetlov ship from Yakutsk to the Arctic settlement of Tiksi in the Lena Delta.
Dina reports that their river cruise ship, that belongs to the Yakutia-based diamond company ALROSA, didn’t make it to Tiksi, as a sudden sever storm started.
You can see that storm in the below pictures. Also you can see the ethnographic outdoor museum «Sottinzy,» the peaks of the Verkhoyansk Range, and grey rocks and pillars of the Arctic bank.
