The Crack At The Edge Of The World

[MUSIC PLAYING] NARRATOR: Here is something
you don’t see every day. A long, jagged crack
splitting the ocean in two. Well, at least that’s
what it looks like. In truth, the ocean
isn’t breaking in half, and, OK, that’s
not even the ocean. Lake Baikal is the world’s
largest freshwater lake, and considered by many to
be the deepest, oldest, and clearest lake in the world. But it’s also a wild place,
one that can be very dangerous. ALEXEY TROFIMOV: —
from small to big chips. NARRATOR: And that’s
what Alexander captured in this picture– a
distinct crack cutting through Lake Baikal’s
frozen waters, made possible by the region’s harsh
conditions, strong winds, heavy snow, and
ever-shifting ice, and that brutal environment
is exactly why he hired a team to help him navigate
those dangers. To Alexander and many like
him, the journey and the risk is half the fun. There is something
more satisfying about skipping the easy
or safe place to travel. To go past the
crowds and tourists, to go a little bit further. If you liked this episode,
be sure to check out this one on another peculiar
place– a prison island off the coast of Florida. MAN: Access to the island
can only done by sea plane or by boat. Our plane was not equipped
for landing on the water, so I enjoyed an afternoon of
picture-taking from the air. NARRATOR: And as always,
don’t forget to subscribe. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC PLAYING]

  1. Had a look at his homepage. Great photos. But at $50 a piece, I'd expect an actual poster being shipped instead of just a stupid image file. Strikes me as a missed opportunity, as I would assume many are unwilling to pay that much for half a product

  2. This was a beautifully done video with refreshing imagery, engaging editing, and great VO work. And all in under 3 minutes. Another!

  3. I once had a dream I was in Siberia, and my dream was just different shades of white.
    Now i want to go to this lake!!

  4. Siberia's remote Lake Baikal is thought to be the oldest, deepest lake on Earth. The region's harsh climate has created a landscape of hauntingly surreal beauty.

  5. "Real life begins where civilization ends" Yes, so true! Because we, as a civilization, have built up way too much unnecessary conformity around ourselves! For example, is there any moral reason why stuffed turtles are only for 8-year-olds and not for 80-year-olds, and skirts are only for women and not for men? Does it harm the rest of us when someone cross-dresses or an 18-year-old chooses to keep playing with his stuffed turtle? What happened to "different does not mean less than"? Fortunately, since we constructed this rigid caste system around ourselves, we can also take it down. Next time you think negatively about someone because he is "Weird", remember you have an opportunity to tear down the walls you have arbitrarily built around yourself.

  6. es exploración para quienes quieren realmente aventurarse en medio de riesgos y estallidos de mismo "océano congelado": el lago Baikal en Siberia, el más extendido de la 🌎

  7. life begins where its civilisations ends, brilliant.. and then you got retards who've never gone farther than taking their dog for a walk or chasing that ugly bish from down the road you always had a crush on.. .pointless shit that matters little.. theres no rules to life but from personal experience i felt most alive when i was surrounded by nature and its harshness, not texting that ugly mole with shit morals and plastic life. theres my rambling take what you will..

  8. Life don't even end in water it started in water yet life ends where you can not go where humans can not breathe the galaxy life ends there because there is mostly no life there not of our knowing really…

  9. so that means that the river border between Alaska and Russia has a jagged crack if you look at it in google maps and also it determines the border between the sea called names

  10. Just here to point out the obvious that there's no "edge of the world"…
    No matter how much the flat earthers claim that there is.
