Afghan in Pictures No.11

By Cole
Mars anyone?
A shot of some Afghanistan scenery looking like something off the NASA website.
Away from any water Afghan becomes a very barren place however, remote and unpleasant as it looks still supports semi-nomadic people.
Although not evident in this image, as we flew further north you could make out remote settlements of two or three homes literally miles from anywhere.

Tomorrows image will be a similar shot showing a comparison where there is vegetation.

1/500s @f6.3 ISO 100

Shows the barren rugged landscape beautifully.

Bleak beauty! This is much better enlarged. I like subtle graduated tones and those lovely jagged peaks.
