Ice-bound Russian ships wrecked off Kamchatka

Kamchatka is a Russian peninsula in the far North, home to seals, volcanoes, and a large industrial-era ship graveyard, where rusting hulks of tankers, trawlers, and tugs lie embedded in icy permafrost, slowly sinking into harbors they once stood tall and upright within.

A large portion of the ships have already been swallowed by ice.

This is a fantastic location, and the photos do a good job of capturing the essence of the place. It seems only one photographer has ever shot it though, as all the photos out there can be traced back to one source.
