Photo of the day: Putorana Plateau

A handout image released by the European Space Agency (ESA) shows a part of the snowy landscape of the Putorana Plateau in northern Central Siberia, Russia. Situated about 100 km north of the Arctic Circle, the site serves as a major reindeer migration route – an increasingly rare natural phenomenon – and is one of the very few centres of plant species richness in the Arctic.
