Photographer's Note

Another shot of dessert at South Khorasan. As you may notice, in this picture, there are some shrubs growing nicely in this dry area.

There is an effort to re-grow vegetation thru an internationally-funded ecological activity called 'carbon sequestration project'. Some hallophytes (plants tolerant to high salinity condition) have been evaluated for its adaptability to this extreme ecosystem.
