Koni peninsula 2008

Magadan is frequently called the capital of Kolyma area. But it should be mentioned that Kolyma flows only in the upper part of Magadan reqion. The rest part is located on the territory of Yakutia. And if one examines Magadan region, he will find out that it consists not only from Kolyma area (and generally not only from mountains and taiga, rivers and lakes), but also another areas, for example, Sea of Okhotsk with its coast.
The seashore has very odd shapes, there are lots of gulfs and peninsulas. One of them is Koni peninsula, which is together with Piagina peninsula creates a significant projection of land, running into the waters of Sea of Okhotsk.
There, on Koni peninsula, I was lucky to spend three months of 2008 – July, August and September. It was another photo expedition by request of the Publishing house. The whole western part of the peninsula relates to the territory of Magadansky Preserve, so we had to come to an agreement with the direction about the possibility of holding such an expedition. The agreement was reached successfully and we received assistance not only from the direction, but also from the employees of the Preserve.
This expedition was distinct from the previous ones: I didn’t have to overcome long distances on my own, there was a possibility to rest in permanent camps and then to take short working routes from the place of stationing.
There were four places where we made permanent camps. The first two weeks – in the mouth of the Burgauli river, where the Reserve’s uninhabited house is located. Then the whole month – on the lighthouse Taran, which stand on the cape with the same name. It turned not only the most comfortable, but also the most beautiful and photogenic place, therefore I spent the last ten days of the season there again. And, besides, for a very short time I was working near Skalisty cordon and about three weeks near the cordon on the cape Plosky. More detailed this expedition is described in the article “Koni Peninsula”.
During this expedition I had chance to use rather representative photographic apparatus. For slides of middle size the following cameras were used: Mamiya 7II with object-glasses Mamiya 43mm, 80mm, 210mm and digital camera Canon EOS 5D with object-glasses from Leica VARIO-ELMAR-R 21-35mm, Leitz WETZLAR SUMMILUX-R 50mm, Leitz WETZLAR VARIO-ELMAR-R 75-200mm. For remote objects an old screwed ASAHI PENTAX with domestically produced Rubinar-500 were used. There was also a tripod MANFROTTO with ball-and-socket head.
