Oktiyabrsky, Kamchatka Krai, Russian Federation

Sleek wind turbines contrast with the tatty buildings of the Oktyabrskiy, located on a sand bar between the Sea of Okhotsk and Bolshaya River.
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.
