You Will Never Guess What These Photos Are

Anton Chekalin is one of those people that have to oportunity to visit places that most of us will not have the chance to see. Even if we did have a chance we would never visit such a place anyway because we like warmth for our vacations, so thanks to our brave ice-resistant champ Anton Chekalin from Russia you will see some really cool and surreal images. As you have seen the featured image you were probably unable to conclude what is it, so to help you out a bit Anton has visited Russian Antartic station and some cool photos are here. So to clarify what you see on the photo above is a Russian Arctic water well, it’s a 16 feet (in European measures 5 meters) deep hole in cold frozen ice and this is the way they get their fresh water for their Arctic station.
