The Dyatlov Pass incident was an event that resulted in the death of nine hikers in the northern Ural Mountains on the night of February 2, 1959. The incident happened on the eastern side of Kholat Syakhl. Since then, the mountain pass where the incident occurred has been called Dyatlov Pass after the group's leader, Igor Dyatlov.
Investigators determined that the skiers had torn their tents from the inside out in order to escape from an apparent threat. They fled the campsite, some of them barefoot, under heavy snowfall. Although the bodies showed no signs of struggle, two victims had fractured skulls and broken ribs, absent contusion. Soviet authorities determined that an "unknown compelling force" had caused the deaths; access to the region was consequently blocked for hikers and adventurers for three years after the incident. Due to the lack of survivors, the chronology of events remains uncertain, although several theories exist, some involving a possible avalanche.

Considering the soon to be dead team member was running for their life dropping the camera, and it lay in freezing cold snow for God knows how many hours until found...then even longer to get developed...I think its in pretty good shape considering.
Just thought I'd bring it into-topic..as for your photo, I haven't a clue. Interesting to find out down the line what it really is or may-be!
