Boreal sunset

Sunset over the Boreal forest seen from a building in the city centre of Neryungri. The city was founded in mid 1970s when a large coal deposit was found in the area. If the surrounding permafrost continues to melt it could be costly, causing problems to the industrial infrastructure built on the frozen earth.
