Frozen freshwater lake glows magnificently in turquoise

Looking at the frozen wonder that is Lake Baikal, you’d be forgiven for thinking you were rich. The freshwater lake, located in Southern Siberia in Russia, is a sagely 20 to 25 million years old that, according to My Modern Met, during March every year, causes ice to form unevenly in pressure and temperature. Which results in these spectacular sights of turquoise gem-like structures shooting out of Earth’s surface, as captured in these wonderful shots by photographer Alexey Trofimov. Wow.
