In the Storm:
The life of Nenets people in the cold and harsh Siberian winter.
Nenets people are nomad inhabitants of the Yamal Peninsula, in the polar Arctic Circle, who base their life on reindeer herding.
During winter, the temperature reaches 50 degrees below zero and the migration to new grazing areas becomes really difficult.

This February for the first time ever the double decker train cars appeared on the “number one” Russian rail road route – Moscow to St. Petersburg.
Here in Moscow double decker trains are a novelty and attract a lot of interest on how they are constructed and how they work.
Thanks to cool Russian photographer Dmitry we have a beautiful winter shot of the carriages.
