Otherworldy Subterranean Dreamscape

This morning I first became aware of a series of amazing images. surrealistically H.R. Giger-esque, captured by an intrepid young Russian photographer in an abandoned salt mine complex several hundred feet under the city of Yekaterinburg, Russia. The mineral responsible for staining these salt deposits is one that before today I do not ever recall seeing or hearing ought of, to wit, Carnallite. For further details and additional photographs for this set visit HERE.
