Photo by @michaelmelford | Sunset at Kronotsky volcano, elevation 11,500 feet, with lenticular clouds. It's part of the larger Kronotsky Zapovednik, which translates as nature reserve—land set aside as wilderness, not for tourists but to be preserved just as it is, and always has been. In 4,000 square miles of wilderness, it's like being in Yellowstone without people or cars. I was lucky to spend a month here! #russia #kamchatka #wilderness #clouds
