Photographer's Note

Another belated shot of the Angara River flowing through the East Siberian city of Irkutsk. There's even a guy in black shorts who's just had a swim in the river, & is drying off on the riverbank at right.

"The Angara River (Russian: Ангара́) is a 1,779 kilometers (1,105 mi) long river in Irkutsk Oblast (Province or State) and Krasnoyarsk Krai, south-east Siberia, Russia. It is the only river flowing out of Lake Baikal, and is a headwater of the Yenisei River.

Leaving Lake Baikal near the settlement of Listvyanka (at 51°52′01″N 104°49′05″E / 51.867°N 104.818°E / 51.867; 104.818), the Angara flows north past the Irkutsk Oblast's cities of Irkutsk, Angarsk, Bratsk, and Ust-Ilimsk. It then turns west, enters the Krasnoyarsk Krai, and falls into the Yenisei near Strelka (at 58°06′07″N 92°59′28″E / 58.102°N 92.991°E / 58.102; 92.991, 40 km south-east of Lesosibirsk)."
