The Wider Image: Swimming in Siberia
Nikolai Bocharov, 77, a member of the Cryophile winter swimmers club, rubs snow on his body as he sits on a snowdrift after bathing in the icy water of the Yenisei River in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk, Russia, November 21, 2015. The air temperature was around minus 27 degrees Celsius. Bocharov started winter swimming while doing military service in Germany. "When I came home from the army, I made an ice hole in the Yenisei and bathed there," he says. "My wife doesn’t understand me and doesn’t share this hobby of mine. My friends sneer at me and wait for me to grow wiser." "I never feel any cold or discomfort and I can stay in cold water for a long time," he says. "When I leave the water I feel a prickling sensation all over my body, it feels like I am ready to fly." REUTERS/Ilya Naymushin PICTURE 3 OF 21 - SEARCH "CRYOPHILE" FOR ALL IMAGES
