Polar Urals 2011

Travelling to Polar Urals for three weeks with the purpose of photo shooting autumn landscapes. Although being a little populated territory, Polar Urals is available enough due to the railway running through the Urals to Labytnangi, a settlement on the left bank of the Ob river. I came to the station Polyarny (110th km) on the train “Moscow-Labytnangi” and performed the route to Lake Estoto, located around 50 km to the North, on the western slope of the Urals mountain chain. Then I returned to the settlement Polyarny, which is uninhabited nowadays. But a geologists’ camp is located there, and geologists allowed me to stay with them. From the settlement I performed radial photo routes through the neighbor territories. As widely known, Polar Urals is represented by the most northern point of the Urals mountain chain – to be more precise, it is the territory from the beginnings of the Khulga river on the South to the Konstantin’s Stone mount (Konstantonov Kamen’) on the North. The territory near the railway is the most explored one. Nevertheless, even this place may be called a virgin landscape.
