Photographer's Note

Yesterday I showed the strange looking colourful sculpture and asked: What is it? A few people tried to guess. Although it was rather clear it represented the Russian flag, it was difficult puzzle. But I am happy to announce that Kasia gave the right answer:
it is Boris Yeltsin tomb at the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow. Boris Yeltsin was the first president of Russia.

As Kasia is the winner, I dedicate to her this (and two more in Workshop) view of the Olkhon Islan on Baikal Lake. Most of the island, and of Sibiria, is covered by dense forest, taiga, but there are also steppes on the south. You can see the main road on the island, very bumpy. On this western part the distance from the island to the land is rather small and the part of the lake is called Small See. At the western part it is far and Baikal looks really like a see.
If someone needs a human presence, here is the view with the hikers. But there are no people living there so the photo without them shows the place better.


I wanted to post this as the main post but had some troubles with uploading
