Kamchatka - Russia's wild East

Published June 8th, 2013

The Russian peninsula Kamchatka is the world's largest crematorium, meaning, it's got the highest densitiy of active volcanoes in the world. Kamchatka's fire mountains formed its land and I kindly invite you to have a photographic travel through this magic land - with a couple of photos here on 500px as well as the full story showing all photos on my website.

Leningradskaya Sunrise

Sunrise at the south side of Tolbachik volcano. Because of its seismic station the place is called Leningradskaya. This place got entirely destroyed by the yet ongoing fissure eruption that started Nov 27th, 2012. Back in the days the Russian lunar lander was tested there.
