A gold miner pours boiling water on the drill he and his colleagues use while looking for gold in a remote corner of North East Russia. When I met them, the temperature was - 59, 8 F (- 51 Celsius). It did not seem to bother the five men - but I have to admit that it did bother the photographer a bit...

Location: Between the cities of Ust Nera and Susuman, North East Russia.
