A small rural village in Siberia, taken from the window of the Trans Siberian Express.
This picture was taken in the summer. During the winter, this would be a vastly different scene.
There are many small houses in this frame. Many people do not have much money and I imagine that life here in this small rural villages must be harsh.
These houses don't appear to have electricity connections and there were no cars or roads in sight.

Usually, of course, they have electricity, but in Siberia it's often that inhabitants using waterways and railways and don't have a proper roads, as small villages located often 300 or 500 kilometers from each others. Last years (since 1980-s) lot of such villages become unpopulated, but now hundreds of thousands of Chinesian immigrants are populating them again.

it looks like captured through a window, during a train trip? It is a bit unsharp, but the simplicity is impressing. And the composition is well with the upgoing view.
TFS and a Happy New Year, Ulf

An interesting image with many details!
Lots of things to study in the frame, and the details are quite good for a shot through the window...
The cables in the top are a bit distracting!
