So proud of Evgenia Arbugaeva, Yakutian photographer. For the second time in December, her pictures appear on CNN Photos Blog. This time the major US news media features her 15 photographs of Tiksi, the sea port located in the Lena Delta, Yakutia, Russia’s Arctic.
The video was shot on the ice road on the Laptev Sea in the area of Bulunsky ulus. That’s the Arctic region of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). In short, Siberia’s Arctic. A truck started its way in the village of Nizhneyansk (the Lena Delta) and reached the Laptev Sea. Offscreen voices belong to a driver and a passenger, who expressed their astonishment about how vast and white the sea is, etc., etc.
Watch Ajar Varlamov’s photos of the blooming tundra at the Lena Delta in Yakutia, Russia’s Siberia. 94 summer photographs of awesome Arctic nature. Pictures were taken in the course of his short vacation to the Lena-Nordensheld biological station in the Bulunsky region of Siberia’s Yakutia on June 25 — July 1, 2010.
A Czech photographer Pavel Kolinsky was lucky enough to travel across the Lena Delta with local fishermen. Here is another set of photographs taken during his fascinating journey to the Arctic part of Siberia’s Yakutia.
Proud to announce that today we start publishing the unique collection of the Czech photographer Pavel Kolínský’s stories about living in Yakutia’s Arctic, precisely in the Lena Delta. The first part is dedicated to the Yakutian sea port of Tiksi. Pavel Kolínský’s photos taken in July of 2006, frankly saying, reveal the whole story. I could say, «No comments are required! Take a look and get the clue!» That’s absolutely true. However, I would like to say a few words.
Tiksi, Yakutia’s Arctic sea port, in May is like Yakutsk in April, Moscow and Europe in February. Yet windy and snowy. But it’s time for snow to start melting partly and people to dress in less super warm clothes. No more polar nights. Instead, you begin enoying white nights. An awesome place to visit in Siberia’s North. See more photos taken in May of 2009.
