Winter swimming in Siberia
Mikhail Shakov, 23, who recently left the army and is a member of the Cryophile winter swimmers club, enters the icy water of the Yenisei River on the first day after returning from military service in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, Nov 21, 2015. The air temperature was some minus 27 degrees Celsius. For Shakov, swimming is a way of disconnecting from daily life and setting his troubles to one side. "All problems leave me," he says. "The world around me seems beautiful." [Photo/Agencies]
