Equipped with a DJI Mini 2 drone, photographer Vadim Sherbakov takes us on an eye-opening journey to Siberia’s Lake Baikal. The area is known for its beautiful rock formations, which are even more dramatic when covered with snow and ice. The film’s title is the Buryat word for lake, a tribute to the area’s indigenous people.
A few years back, the guys at the Beyond the Press channel created a small carousel on a frozen lake by cutting a circle in the ice. Now, they’re back with a super-sized version of the stunt, in which they helped make a 1000-foot diameter circle out of Finland’s lake Lappajärvi. The ice disc is estimated to weigh about 30,000 tons.
Photographer and artist Jonna Jinton lives in Northern Sweden, where frigid temperatures prevail in the winter. In this lighthearted video, she shows us what it’s like to hand wash laundry in these extreme conditions, using a frozen lake as her washing machine, and trudging through the snow to dry (or freeze) her wet clothes.
Artist and museum exhibit designer Shawn Lani has built a machine that circulates dry ice into a shallow tub of water, resulting in captivating cloud-like motion as the frozen carbon dioxide melts. His Icy Bodies exhibit can be found in a number of science museums around the world.
