Striking photos of Kamchatka.

Kutkh, the great raven-god of the Koryak, dropped a feather as he flew over the earth, thus was created Kamchatka. At first the land was only populated by men, then Kutkh created a woman. She was very beautiful and all the men fell in love with her and desired her. As the men died they became mountains whose hearts still burnt with a fiery love - thus were created the volcanoes of Kamchatka [webcam] [legend source]. Koryak legends.
