More photos of Yakutsk and Oymyakon by Amos Chapple (NZ)

New Zealand-based photographer Amos Chapple decided to go on a two-day journey from Yakutsk, the coldest major city on Earth, to capture what everyday life is like in village Oymyakon, which is even colder, then Yakutsk. Much colder...

With the lowest temperature of -67.7°C (-90°F), recorded in 1933, and the average for January being -50°C (-60°F), Oymyakon is the coldest permanently inhabited place on this planet.

“I was wearing thin trousers when I first stepped outside into – 47 °C (-52°F). I remember feeling like the cold was physically gripping my legs, the other surprise was that occasionally my saliva would freeze into needles that would prick my lips”, the photographer told to weather.com. The photographer recalls that the hardest thing was not the cold itself, but that his camera’s focus and zoom rings would occasionally freeze in place.

The Central Market In Yakutsk is full of fish and meat as the crops do not grow there.
