Well, it's somewhere that they use the cyrillic alphabet anyway. A brace of photos taken during exploration of a disused iron mine although photo 23 suggests there's some copper about. Top notch photos in any case. In case it rolls down go to the entry for 10 November 2011 - '10 ???, 2011 at 3:19 AM"

The blog is worth a look at - it seems to be largely a celebration of taking photos in places where few sane people would go. Enjoy !

What a lovely way of describing how they addressed the issue of the steel lid.

Apologies if I'm teaching grannies to suck eggs, but to get the pages in English copy the web address and paste into Google Translate box.
