Photographer's Note

Back to Central Asia and more shots;

This was taken after passing Bulunkul security check point on a cold bright morning from Karakoram Highway at an altitude of 5000 m asl looking over the mammoth Pamir Mountain Range in southern Xinjiang.

Seeing this entire arena of rugged mountains is breath taking indeed while passing through some of the most sparsely populated and sensitive region. The rectangular blocks are those of commie military installation, just to illustrate the scale reference.

Can you spot the map of PRC crafted on the slope on lhc of the bottom frame !!

Setting: 80 mm, 1/320 sec, F22, ISO Raw 100, 0823 hrs & polarised
