Picture of the Day: An Illuminated Snow Tunnel in Russia
AN ILLUMINATED SNOW TUNNEL IN RUSSIA
In this incredible photograph by Michael Zelensky, we see the entrance to an amazing snow tunnel that’s almost a kilometer long. Michael says the tunnel is located under snow fields in the deep ravines at the end of the summer thaw (translated from Russian, may not be exact). Apparently it is fairly close to the nearby Mutnovsky Volcano in southern Kamchatka, Russia. The person holding the torch is a nice touch and really helps to illuminate the awesome texture of the snow tunnel. Although I really hope the heat from that torch doesn’t put them at risk of any type of tunnel collapse.
