Vitaly Berkov from the Primorsky Territory thought over his winning picture in the nomination “The World is in Our Hands” for two years. The picture is multi-layered: in the foreground are fragile figurines of children, followed by a lotus carpet on the lake smooth surface, then sketches from a railway bed, and a powerful industrial backdrop with “towers” ​​- cooling towers of a thermal power plant.

“I show the contrast between nature, industry and man, fitting everything in one frame,” says Vitaly Berkov. - And at the same time I demonstrate that their peaceful coexistence is possible. Over the 2 of the year, I made 5 trips to Karasinoye Lake to catch this photo, and the full 2 of the day was there. I did not achieve the ideal, I also wanted good thunderclouds. I am an environmental engineer by profession, ”continues the seaside photographer. - When the state district power station was going to be built on this lake, it was based on the presence of a natural reservoir. Now the CHP is in working condition, but no longer any discharges of warm water into this lotus lake are done. ” According to Vitaly Berkov, a relic plant appeared there either thanks to the former mayor of the village of Artyomovsky, or to the chief engineer of the power plant itself, residents of the town of Artyom still argue about this.

According to the RGO, the best deep-water frame of this year is from a professional diver and photographer. Andrey Shpataka. He shot an underwater flower of jellyfish-cyanea in one of the bays of the Primorsky Territory.

“In some years, we have a lot of jellyfish, and most of them in the cove in front of the entrance to the bucket of Rudnaya Bay,” the photographer says. - In October, it may be a situation that 10 days have perfect weather and excellent visibility, although this is an industrial area. It is very convenient there: the depth is small, but there is a lot of light. For the first time I saw a jellyfish wrapped in the form of a flower. ” Andrei Shpatak gave advice to budding photographers: “Shoot a lot and will end up working. In order to remove something new, it is not necessary to go far, it is likely that it is under your nose, ”- I am sure Andriy Shpatak.

16-year-old Aglaia Tsidulko from Moscow was awarded the nomination "The Best Young Photographer" for a landscape from the island of Reinek (Sea of ​​Okhotsk, Khabarovsk Territory). True, the jury clouded the misty cliff into the Sea of ​​Japan, in the Primorsky Territory, where there is an island of the same name. And if the archipelago of Empress Eugenia is not experiencing fog deficiency, then there are definitely no such stones on the seaside Reynard.

“We went from Sakhalin Island to the Shantar Islands with the club“ Boomerang ”and at the same time did the accounting of marine mammals. On the way we came across Reinhek Island, said Aglaya Tsidulko East Russia. It played a cruel joke. We made holes in both catamarans and eventually stood for a while and waited for them to dry out and glue to harden. As soon as we left the island, the weather had completely deteriorated and the fog crawled out from behind the rocks. Islands, I managed remove it ", shared the winner of the All-Russian competition.
