Icy Caverns Under The Tianuksa River


There is a beauty that lies underneath the icy Tianuksa River in Leningradskaya Oblast, Russia. An otherworldly cavern of layered ice and glistening crystalline forming under the surface of the river. This phenomenon of a place was discovered by 55-year-old Russian photographer Yuri Ovchinnikov and his son completely by accident. Air gaps create a two foot gap allowing the brave explorers to carefully crawl into the cave in hopes that the ice would not crack beneath them. These photos express a risk and a dedication to allow others to see such an amazing unseen world. To view more photography by Yuri Ovchinnikov, visit his online portfolio at Photodom.com
