Oktiyabrsky, Kamchatka Krai, Russian Federation

A group of teenagers riding bicycles on the beach next to a derelict apartment block in the so-called 2nd Base, an area of Oktyabrskiy that is heavily affected by coastal erosion.
Since the 1970s the sea has been claiming the land, destroying part of the settlement. Almost three entire streets have disappeared under water and the remains of former apartment buildings are slowly being worn away by the waves. Locals and climate experts believe global warming is responsible, as the mild weather melts the sea ice which once protected the shores of Oktyabrskiy from strong autumn and winter storms.
