Photographer's Note

A view of the lagoon, in front of Lake Baikal, just outside the town of Severobaikalsk, on the north west shore of this massive, banana shaped lake. The dachas or holiday homes are in the distance. I liked the yellow wildflowers contrasting against the reflected blue skylight.

From wikipedia:

"Dacha (Russian: да́ча) is a Russian word for seasonal or year-round second homes, located in the exurbs of Soviet and Russian cities. It is usually occupied part of the year by its owner or rented out to urban residents as a summer retreat. Dachas are very common in Russia, and are also widespread in some former republics of the Soviet Union."
