He said: “That year my friends invited me to the adventurous journey to Baikal lake.

“We made our way on the ice from northern side to the center of the lake where the Olkhon Island is located.

“It took us seven days to travel on the spring ice, we were extremely lucky with circumstances and weather conditions so we managed to take pictures of the Baikal seal baby.”
