    Orda Cave Awareness Project (10 pictures)

    For the majority of people Russia is distant and strange country, terra incognita. And Orda cave is equally weird for Russians. This gypsum cave is unique – low water temperature (+5C), huge volumes of underwater passages and marvelous visibility. It is the biggest gypsum cave in the world. Only couple hundreds of people saw this exceptional wonder of nature. And it was photographed by nothing more than dozen. And nobody pictured this wizardly palace of gypsum and water as we have done.

    Blue Lake (13 pictures)

    Blue Lake is a beautiful karst spring which is located in Kabardino-Balkaria in the Caucasian mountains in the South of Russia. At 235m in length, 130m wide and 258 m deep Blue Lake is currently considered to be the deepest karst lake-source in the world and shares first place with the Red lake (Yugoslavia) as the deepest karst lake. It's sheer size is not the only reason to consider this lake a unique natural object. With the water temperature of approximately 9oC from the bottom to the surface it offers excellent conditions for the preservation of artifacts. The lake offers enormous potential for discovering a host of historically significant objects on the bottom. The Blue Lake has been an intersection of world history since the time of peoples’ migration from Africa to Europe and for thousands of years people have thrown things in to the lake expecting them to disappear forever.

    Lady of Orda Cave (5 pictures)

    There is a legend about a Lady of Orda Cave. She is a beautiful spirit, as charming as her cave, kind and caring, beautiful and full of light. That spirit takes care of all divers who enter that incredible natural cathedral. So, we wanted Natalie Avseenko, a two-times world champion freediver, ex-world record holder, “The Princess of Whales” to act as the Lady. The task was very difficult and there are a few people in the world who could fulfill it.
