Photographer's Note

Here is an outlook from a terrace of an outdoor restaurant located in the Grape Valley. The valley is located on the western slope of the Flaming Mountain, about 15 kilometers north-east of Turpan City. The valley is famous of growing not only grapes but, there are to find apricot, apple, peach, pear, fig, and mulberry trees in large numbers available. The sweetness and taste of all fruits grown in the valley is exeptional, some say the top in the world.
The mild climat all year round makes this place a heaven for gardeners and travellers alike. The population of the Grape Valley consist of Uygur, Hui, and Han nationalities, in total around 10.000 steady residents live there.
