It has been a few months since Russian photographer and blogger Rostislav Mashin has visited Kamchatka Peninsula, but the memories are still fresh. Recently, he has published his photos of Kamchatka in his blog.
Klyuchevskiy National Park was his first stop on the way. The National park was named after the highest active volcano of Eurasia – Klyuchevskaya Sopka.
Morning landscapes of Tolbachik valley are perfect for a meditation.
As the result of many volcano eruptions, black ash covers Tolbachik surroundings.
The active volcano is on the right side.
In the twilight, ash covered hills seem unearthly.
Lava rocks serve as a vivid reminder of Tolbachik’s latest eruption.
Located in a few miles from Tolbachik, the dead forest provides a grim reminder of the Big Tolbachinsky Fissure Eruption (1975-1976).
The views of Klyuchevskaya Sopka are amazing.
Nalychevo Nature Park is famous not only because of its ancient volcanic landscape, but also because of its hot springs and mineral waters, which are highly beneficial for health.
On his way back, Rostislav has captured Mutnovsky volcano and its 40-foot waterfall.
This small, but beautiful waterfall is situated on Mutnaya river.
Located in the southern part of Kamchatka Peninsula, Gorely volcano was the last stop on blogger’s trip.
