Dmitry Kokh is a wildlife and underwater photographer who is based in Moscow, Russia. In September 2021 he could capture a fascinating scene on the Kolyuchin island when he was coming back from a long trip. His crew was sailing a yacht along the coast and the captain decided to stop at a small island (Kolyuchin) looking for a shelter, due to bad weather. Kolyuchin was the polar weather station for the Soviet Union. The station was shut down in 1992, but the buildings on the island are still in the place. Dmitry Kokh mentions "The stormy wind, rain, and neglected buildings on the rocky shores all served to make everything happening seem surreal.
