Photographer's Note

Silkroad travels: Pamir
On our way to Alichur we encountered the dried lake bed. The Pamir plateau (around 4000 m alt.) has been largely shaped by glaciers. But the plains on the picture presumably owe their origin to liquid water.

Some plants grow in cushions like in the European high alpine zone. In the workshop section I show a few examples here and here
