RUSSIA ~Kamchatka-UNESCO~

Amazing card from an area of which I never heard of...I think it must be difficult to take such a gorgeous photo... on such a remote place... and at just the right moment...
Sooo beautiful colors and wonderful reflection in the water...(RU-996516) Thank you very much Elena!!

And with lovely stamps too!!

Eruption in 1994 of the Klyuchevskaya Sopka volcano.

Kamchatka is on the a list of the most ecologically important regions in the world. There are 160 volcanoes, from this 29 are still active and six of them are in the UNESCO list.
The highest volcano is Klyuchevskaya Sopka (4,750 m) and it is also the largest active volcano of Europe and Asia. Its steep, symmetrical cone towers about 100 kilometres (60 mi) from the Bering Sea.

It is one of the most remote corners of the planet, with nature preserved almost intact.The area is home to numerous brown bears, sea otters and Stellar's sea eagles. a setting as remote as it is gorgeous.
