Photographer Visited Chernobyl Site With Infrared Camera And Here's What He Saw.

On April 26, 1986, the biggest man-made disaster in history occurred. A fire was started in the number four reactor at the Chernobyl plant near Pripyat, Ukraine, which created an explosion, causing radioactivity to be released into the atmosphere. The land was immediately deemed unsafe. It's been over thirty years, and people are now allowed back into the site of the Chernobyl disaster. Photographer Vladimir Migutin went to the site with an infrared camera and the results are absolutely breathtaking.

A few years ago, Vladimir went on a photography mission of a lifetime.

On a two-day trip, he visited the Chernobyl site and captured some incredible pictures like this picture of the Azure Swimming Pool.

Even the butterflies think so!
