19 aerial photographs of Sakha Republic (Yakutia), Russia’s Siberia & Far East. April 2014. Photo credit: Masaomi Adachi.
This week I facebooked a photo of my little boy sitting at a table in one of the best Yakutsk restaurants and there was the drawing of a tweeting bird hanging on the wall. In the caption I wrote, «The spring is when the soul is singing.» That was actually drawn in the picture.
Suddently, in comments I have received a few aerial photographs of snowy Yakutia from a Tokyo-based friend of mine, Masaomi Adachi. He said, «Yesterday I flew over Yakutia from Paris to Tokyo. Your land is beautiful.»
«Did it take 30 minutes to cross the sky of Yakutia?» I asked. «No,» he said. «It took 1 or 2 hours. Much time. Your land is huge.»
That’s true. 3 000 000 sq km. Yakutia is the biggest Russian region and it’s located right as the big heart in Siberia and Far East.

You know what? In the end of April, it still looks wintery. Snow on valleys and mountains. Frozen rivers. Revelation even to me. In Yakutsk city, we don’t have snow around for last couple of weeks.
Saying many thanks to Masaomi for his permission to show his aerial photographs.
Enjoy his Yakutia photos!
Masaomi’s first flight was done from Japan to Europe.
Massaomi’s second flight was taken from Paris to Tokyo.
Thanks to Masaomi, I start the new blog topic Flying over Yakutia with photographs taken from planes crossing the sky of my homeland.
If you are flying from Europe to Japan or from Chicago to Beijing or any other direction, but over Russia’s Yakutia, keep your cameras open, when you spot Yakutsk (Jakutsk) on the map. Take aerial photographs and share them with eYakutia readers. I believe, they must be awesome!
