Nevertheless, people have flocked to the site for photographs of an imagined tropical bliss outside Novosibirsk, a sprawling industrial city in Siberia with a population of 1.6 million people, better known for its frigid winters and metallurgical factories than its beaches.

Calling it the “Maldives of Novosibirsk,” for the tropical vacation destination in the Indian Ocean, social media users have posted photos of themselves at the pond in beachwear, doing yoga and posing elaborately for the camera.

The users created such a run of tongue-in-cheek photographs of supposed paradise that the company was forced to issue a warning.

The operator, Siberian Generating Company, acknowledged in a statement the site had become a “social media star,” but urged people to take caution around it.

“It is not poisonous,” the company said of the water, adding that “the radiation level is normal” according to tests by two laboratories.

But the water has a high pH value from the coal ash that is pumped into it, and the conditions can cause allergic reactions, the company said. “We strongly ask that while hunting for selfies you don’t fall in the ash dump!”

And although the company warned people that it’s “almost impossible” to get out of the dump’s muddy bottom, some social media users ventured to the lake’s edge or even onto paddle boards on the water. Beside the effluent pond, women in bikinis and summer dresses struck poses as if enjoying the tropical sun on a sandy beach. One woman posed with an inflatable pink flamingo.

Some people delicately inserted a foot into the chemical slurry, as though testing the temperature for a dip.

And a newlywed couple posted a series of pictures by the blue water, so iridescent it seemed nearly to sparkle, as a backdrop for their new life together. In a comment with one of the photos, the photographer wrote that no one had held a picnic at the site or actually splashed in the water.

Как организовать и собраться на фотосессию ???? Первое и самое главное определиться ЧЕГО ТЫ ХОЧЕШЬ! В голове должна быть четкая картинка образа, места и фото которые хочешь в итоге получить (лучше даже найти примеры ) Далее мы ищем фотографа???? Как только у меня есть картинка того что я хочу, начинаются поиски. Захожу к фотографам на странички и смотрю на стиль, обработку, а там уже понимаю подойдёт ли этот стиль под мою задумку ☺️ Далее договариваемся ) Когда переписываешься с фотографом общение должно быть легким и комфортным. Если переписка ни как не ладится, вы не можете найти общий язык , но работы КАПЕЦ как запали в душу, то при личной встрече вы так же не сможете найти общий язык , ты не сможешь расслабиться и в итоге не будет того результата, что хотела ! ❗️Так же если ты хочешь лав стори, а у фотографа в портфолио только дети ❌ НЕТ! Мы выбираем тех кто снимает в той сфере что нам нужна ❗️ Это ВАЖНО! Нашли фотографа, договорились (скинули примеры чего делаем , далее фотограф может подсказать с локацией и образом), выбрали день, время, место . Пол дела сделано! Далее образ. Если потребуется стилист то действуем по тому же плану, что и с фотографом ☝???? Договорились . Образ ???? ищем что то у себя в гардеробе, если нет подходящего, то покупаем , сохраняем все бирки, а после съёмки возвращаем (так делают оооочень многие, так что ты не будешь первой и не чего бояться????) Далее продумываем детали(украшения). Серёжки, кольца, браслеты, колье, цепочки, все что угодно ! Это должно сочетаться с образом, так что не переборщи ???? Так же если это #фотопикник, то мы продумываем каждый кекс ???? ищем примеры! И в конце концов пишем СПИСОК, что бы ни чего не забыть! Я пишу все детали (цвет белья, платье,обувь,украшения и т.д) Так же необходимо взять с собой : ✅матирующие салфетки ✅прозрачный блеск ✅расчёска ✅ватные палочки (на случай если нужно что то подправить в макияже) Это мой список и то как Я готовлюсь к съемкам, ни разу способ/список не подвёл ???????? Надеюсь и вам этот пост будет полезен) Ph:@ekaterinaaaaks Stylist:@grimerkalab @lionheart_jew - украшения ручной работы . . . #lovestory #золоотвал #фотографновосибирск #фотографнск #стилистновосибирск #визажистновосибирск

“At the same time, it seems to me that the ‘danger’ has been slightly exaggerated,” she wrote. “Naturally, you shouldn’t swim there, but for the length of an hourlong photo shoot, you won’t grow a third hand.”

Other users posted less inviting photos: Some showed the hulking, rusting pipes that carry the ash slurry from the power station to the pond, or caught in the background the smokestacks, a feature the city is more typically known for.
