"Siberia, synonymous with extreme cold, is known for the frozen temperature that can plunge below minus 40 degrees during the winter," writes Your Shot photographer Alessandra Meniconzi. "The Nenets people in Yamal region live in extreme cold conditions, and they protect themselves with reindeer and fox furs." Here, a freckled resident pulls a fur hood tight to keep the cold out—at least as much as possible. This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
