An incredible split in a frozen lake makes it look as if the world is cracking in half.<br />
<br />
As the sun begins to rise an orange glow sweeps across the lake, which is full of spectacular cracks that run all across it.<br />
<br />
The cracks run for hundreds of metres from one side of the lake to the other.<br />
<br />
The stunning pictures of Lake Baikal in Russia were taken by freelance photographer Alexey Trofimov.<br />
<br />
Alexey, 44, from Bratsk in Russia, described the lake as "magical" and "fell in love" with the spectacular patterns the cracks created. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
