Story behind the picture
Ten days of shaking in a small micro-bus on the endless steppe without water, and with overnight rain and wind. Finally, the following morning I am standing at the edge of a rocky plateau.
At my feet, the dried-up bottom of an ancient sea. The Ustyurt Plateau in South-Western Kazakhstan.
It is extremely difficult to convey in words the flooding of feelings. Exhausted and still not fully dried up yet after the previous rainstorm, we managed to experience a view such as this one.
