Oymyakon - Siberia - Russia  - 50 Celcius    March  2014

It is so cold in Oymyakon the flag has frozen solid and can be held up like a wooden board

Decrepit bridge on the road to Oymyakon

Even ice 2 metres thick wasnt enough to prevent this truck breaking through, it is so cold here the ice re froze instantly

locking the truck in a frozen grip until thaw, when it will sink to the bottom.  Lena River,  Yakutsk.
