Roughly 20 years ago, Svetlana Kazina quit her job in the city to follow her true calling — nature. She and her two kids moved to a wooden hut in the mountain village of Uznezya in Russia’s Altai Krai region, near the border with Kazakhstan. Their new home was built almost seven decades ago. It had no heating, no toilet, no running water. But it had what the city couldn’t offer them. Peace and harmony.
As time went by, the mountains have become Svetlana’s natural habitat. However, she’s not only gazing at them but sharing the breathtaking views with the rest of us through photography as well.

One recent Svetlana’s trip to Siberia’s highest peak has produced particularly stunning pictures. While exploring the areas around Belukha mountain, she captured a colorful optical phenomenon called cloud iridescence, caused by small water droplets or ice crystals individually scattering light.
