These stunning photographs really do show a land of fire and ice! The frozen landscape of the Olkhon Islands, Russia, appears to be ablaze in some of these pictures as the icy sheets of the glaciers reflect the early morning suns rays.
Despite the sub-zero temperatures on the islands, the island is frequently bathed in a low sunlight during the winter months – leading to the formation of these incredible caves, full of icy stalactites. Photographer Vladimir Ryabkov, from Moscow, snapped these incredible images during a visit in March. (Caters News)
