A guy from Sarov has been collecting almost impossible frost photos from all over Russia for three years. Absolutely no special effects!

Thanks to the most diverse climatic zones, the territory of Russia is full of natural wonders. But they are always tied to the same regions.

Those who constantly see the northern lights may never get hit by hail. And the inhabitants of the windy steppe lands will not experience an earthquake.

therefore the only place to see all the meteorological surprises at once is the Internet.

For the third year in a row, Russian ecologist Kirill Bakanov has been shooting and finding fantastic and sometimes almost impossible photographs on social networks, as if taken with the use of special effects.

He collects them on his Twitter account under the nickname @WeatherSarov1.

Below we publish a short history of the researcher and the most impressive pictures that he came across. Some may even be intimidating.

The idea appeared after the tragedy in his hometown

Closing the city of Sarov, where Kirill Bakanov lives, is located on the very border of the Nizhny Novgorod region. Its population is slowly approaching 100,000.

Mostly locals work at an enterprise for the development and production of nuclear weapons, and to Nizhny Novgorod from here it is two and a half times less than to go to Moscow.

In 2015, during the celebration of Youth Day, the city sharply collapsed a hurricane that flooded areas, hailstorms hit cars and killed a child.

After this cataclysm, Kirill began to get involved in meteorology. Now he has a degree in ecology and geochemistry, and as a hobby he collects unusual pictures of nature from all over the world.

“To get accurate meteorological data, you need to communicate with scientists and amateurs from all over the world. So I opened Twitter, but I hardly saw any interesting posts there about what is happening in Russia, ”says Kirill.

Then he began to search for posts of other users on VK and Facebook using keywords like tornado or hurricane.

The ecologist publishes almost every day. He does about 5% of the content himself, and he repost and retweet everything else from open sources, indicating the conditions and date of filming.

Now look how much variety there is in the weather throughout Russia.
