Photographer's Note

Shot taken shortly after dawn looking north from the village of Karakul, on the Pamir Highway in Tajikistan. The ruins in the foreground are an old cossack barracks from the era of the 'Great Game' (late 1800's). In the mid ground you can still see frozen lake Karakul (Karakul is ~4000m altitude) and in the distance the Chinese mountains.
