Photographer's Note

When my son and I were traveling along the curved coastline of Sivash, very salty bay of Azov Sea, the main point of our interest in its westernmost part was a peninsula called "Ad" that for Russian language speakers means "Hell" or "Hades". But as Internet says, in this case Ad is the Crimean Tatar language word, which simply means "first". So this place is not the Hell Peninsula but the First Peninsula. Only fears can be generated by the unusual color of water in this part of the bay. This is not because of some pollution. The color is rather natural. It is due to the very intensive saltiness of the Sivash Bay.
