October 4, Moscow hosted the presentation of the sixth issue of Yevgeny Feldman’s slick magazine Svoy, which was completely dedicated to Viktor Lyagushkin’s art. Photos and stories “from caves and seas” on the pages of the new issue, and even more remarkable stories by Viktor during the presentation captivated the audience.

Just received by mail a material about the creativity of our permanent leader Viktor Lyagushkin in the Chinese photographic magazine. We did not remember its name and can not pronounce it, but we should note that the hieroglyphs are combining surprisingly well with the gypsum fractures of the walls of the underwater Orda cave (Urals, Russia) the photo of which opens the article.
Feature includes interview with Viktor and his photographs of Orda Cave and Blue Lake (Russia).
We are very proud of the publication of the splendid Viktor Lyagushkin’s photograph of the Blue Lake (Caucasus, Russia) in all local editions of National Geographic Magazine in the section Visions of Earth. Will try to collect all the international issues!
These unusual shots had been taken by Viktor Lyagushkin in the Blue Lake (Caucasus, Russia). Editors of the Diver Magazine (Canada) choose the photographs for their December 2015 mini feature to show the beauty of the birds and highlight an unusual approach in underwater photography.
Good news for our followers from Poland: article about Blue Lake Project in the Diving Polish Magazine “Nurkowanie” #3 2013. Eight two-page spreads!
“Gdzieś na południu Rosji wznoszą się strome skały, a wysokie góry oślepiają bielą. Rozdzielają je ponure kaniony, którymi pędzą szalone rzeki. Kaniony musiały ustąpić pod naporem wody, więc rzeki stawały się coraz szersze i wypływały swobodnie, przecinając zielone łąki i lasy. Oto Kaukaz.”
Stoneworts — an ancient class that combines the attributes of algae and higher-order plants — serve as a source of food for waterfowl, especially during autumn migrations.
Wrapped in a weightless veil of cladophoraceae algae —
poetically named mermaid’s hair — stoneworts adorn this 260-meter-deep karst lake, their mild radiancy juxtaposed against the gloomy rock walls of the deep. When exposed to sunlight or strobes, stoneworts start to shed their own light. This phenomenon is known as photoluminescence, and lasts for only a fraction of a second.
HOW I GOT THE SHOT I used a Nikon D3s, 60mm, f/2.8, Subal housing, and two Ikelite DS160 substrobes mounted on the camera.
Where: Blue Lake, Kabardino-Balkaria, Caucasus, Russia
