The Amazing Underwater Forest of Lake Kaindy
What makes Lake Kaindy truly remarkable is that it contains an underwater forest. Visible on the lakes surface are the tall, dried-out tops of submerged Spruce trees that rise above the water’s surface like the masts of sunken ships. They are the only sign of the amazing frozen forest below the water’s surface.
The water is so cold (even in summer the temperature does not exceed 6 degrees) that the pine needles remain on the trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged. During the winter, the lake freezes and becomes a popular spot for ice diving.
The lake is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty. The lake was created after an earthquake in 1911 triggered a large landslide blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.
look how cute barlowe’s aliens are uwuuwwuwuwuuu
also his inferno series is amazing if only for how well he can convey the sense of scale of everything and the isolation. but then all of his art is 100% amazing ok
Are these the creatures that were used in the Alien Planet special from Discovery?
The only that creeped me out was the giant thing that lived on the algae sea.
this fucking thing
They are omg! I love that documentary. The entire documentary was based on ‘Expedition’, Wayne Barlowe’s art book about a possible alien world.
Everyone should check out the documentary, its bound to be online somewhere!
