You really caught the bleakness of the city very well. I can't help wondering about the purpose of your visit. And why people need to live so far north!

    Thanks. People live there because of natural resources, they work for Norilsk Nickel company (city-forming company). For me it was a business trip.

    This all looks seriously cold. Thanks for taking us there.

    PS. It is quite informative to look up Norilsk's history on Wikipedia.

    Sharp, colorful images of a rather exotic place. I can understand living there more than I can understand living in a place where AC is a requirement to fall asleep, at least at present.

    Fascinating place! I love the contrast between the run down tower blocks and the (attempts at) grandiose architecture.
    Great light. Some very good wide angle shots.

    TFS!

    Beautifully captured images of what seems a bleak and challenging place to be, let alone to live in.
    Those decaying Stalinist era abandoned mass housing apartments, the deep snow drifts, the freezing temperatures, the heavy and polluting industry around the town all make it look like the sort of place where vodka might be needed to help take the edge off the realities of everyday life and its challenges.
    Even the more attractive night shots can't disguise the cold harshness of the place.
    Fascinating set.

    Great series of shots, not only because it is a remote outpost of humanity but also because of your portrayal of it. The sort of place I might enjoy a few vodkas in ! That's if I could withstand that cold.

    Great series!
    a6500 & some nice e-mount lenses. Be fond of photography - this is the way to alleviate stress

    Thanks a lot to all for comments!!!

    Regarding vodka agree with you, here it is necessary to keep warm, but of cause in right dose ;)

    I hope to visit Norilsk in summer time.
