If you believe that winter is only in your city, pictures from Oymyakon, Russia, the coldest town on Earth, may alter your opinion.

With the most reduced temperature of −71.2 °C (−96 °F), recorded in 1924, and the normal for January being -50°C (-60°F), this town is the coldest for all time occupied place on this planet.

New Zealand-based picture taker Amos Chapple chose to go on two-day travel from Yakutsk to catch what regular day to day existence resembles in Oymyakon.

"I was wearing slim pants when I initially ventured outside into –47 °C (-52°F). I felt like the ice was physically holding my legs, the other amazement was that once in a while my spit would solidify into needles that would prick my lips", the picture taker told to

The picture taker reviews that the hardest thing was not the frost itself, but rather that his camera's concentration and zoom rings would incidentally solidify set up.

The Central Market In Yakutsk is full of fishes as the climate doesn't support agriculture.

This is the only route to Oymyakon.

Local farmers keep their cows in this barn to provide them warmness at night.

This is the only shop in the village.

Cars can be parked only in heated garage or left outside with engine on, otherwise they won't start.

This Coal Heating plant keeps the village warm.
