"To the Earth, we are just small things," writes Amarate Tansawet, a member of our Your Shot community. Photographing from a rocky height on Olkhon Island, Tansawet captured a lone figure traversing the frozen surface of Russia's Lake Baikal. Located in southeastern Siberia, Baikal is the world's oldest and deepest lake.
