The Red Rock on Reineke Island

This Red Rock which looks like a sculptor’s masteroiece is situated on the  the small Reineke Island, which is located south-west of the Sea of Okhotsk between Shantarsky island and the Sakhalin Island, 5 km to the north of the mainland continent. Administratively it is part of the Nikolaev District of Khabarovsk Territory.

The island is the natural border between Udsky and Sakhalin bays. Both the island and the bay are named after the famous Russian hydrographer, vice-admiral and director of the Hydrographic Department Michail Reineke. And yes, this lovely card was given to me by Sveta from Khabarovsk.
