Lake Baikal, in the Russian region of Siberia, is a massive body of water—the world’s deepest and most voluminous freshwater lake. Its location and the surrounding geography can lead to fascinating phenomena in the winter, as ferocious winds and cycles of melting and refreezing build and sculpt works of structural beauty—stones supported on wind-worn pedestals, undulating surface ice, encrusted beaches, crazy icicles, frozen methane bubbles, and more. Below, a collection of some interesting and beautiful images from the clear ice of Lake Baikal.

The 2018 Drone Awards photo contest has announced the best aerial photographs of the year across six categories for professionals and amateurs. More than 4400 submissions were submitted from everywhere in the world by talented professional photographers and amateur drone photo enthusiasts coming from 101 countries.
Even with the People's Democratic Republic of Korea (commonly referred to as North Korea here in the west) in the news so much, what goes on behind the scenes in that country is rarely seen.
Photographer Eric Lafforgue has been to the DPRK six times since 2008, and because of these pictures, he is banned from ever returning.

Not a teen any longer, now aged 22.
Eadington is a design student from Kansas, currently living in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. At the age of 14 she decided to take a picture every day and a few years ago she released her first timelapse, showing how much she grew over eight years. “I saw a few similar projects on the internet and thought it could be interesting to see how I changed as I grew up too,” Eadington told Bored Panda. Maintaining a project this big has its difficulties though. “The most challenging part is maybe aligning the eyes for the video.”
