Winter swimming in Siberia
Vladimir Khokhlov, 71, a member of the Cryophile winter swimmers club, warms up after bathing in the icy water of the Mana river in Taiga district outside the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, Nov 6, 2015. The air temperature was about minus 5 degrees Celsius. A retired builder, Khokhlov now works as a caretaker in Krasnoyarsk. "I can't live without bathing daily in cold water, it's like a drug," he says. "If there's no river nearby I have to find another way to pour cold water over myself from head to foot."
