Photographer's Note

Apples are said to have come originally from this part of the world; Almaty, the former capital and still largest city in Kazakhstan, was called "Alma-Ata" - "Father of Apples" - during the Soviet period.

Along the road from Tashkent to Samarkand (which is paved; it's beyond the left edge of this picture), you will often find stands selling apples and other products. This group of stands, outside the town of Bahmarstoy, is probably the largest, and since this was the time of the apple harvest, apples were plentiful, colorful, and tasty. The large yellow jars contain locally produced honey, and I believe that is garlic and onions in some of the white jars.

Technical: Curves to raise the brightness overall, then Hue/Saturation, selected for the red-yellow part of the spectrum, and raised saturation.
