Lake Chany, Russia
With this winter scene of Russia’s Lake Chany (озеро Чаны), that links to a compilation of all our special images from 2017, the PROBA-V team is happy to wish all the best to you and your family for the upcoming holidays and the New Year!
The lake itself is one of the largest in Russia and located just north of the border with the Republic of Kazakhstan. It is a shallow, freshwater lake surrounded by wetlands, salt marshes and birch and aspen forests, making it an important stop for birds migrating southward from colder Siberia.
And of course, it makes us here in Europe dream of the fairy tale white Christmas…
