10 Flying Over the Untouched Land

Flying Over the Untouched Land

Posted on September 20, 2012 by team


This summer was a hard time for the land of Kazakhstan. It brought various incidents which ended with a terrible fire that destroyed one of the most beautiful places of Central Asia – mountain resort Medeo. Many zones are still under the threat of fire. Planes kept flying over the region for all the summer period and one journalist often joined them to collect some material about the nature of south-east Kazakhstan and take photos of the region. Some of them are presented in this post.

The Issyk river

Valley not far from the border with Kyrgyzstan.

National park “Kulsai lakes”.

The valley of the Turgen river resembles some place of the Himalayas.

Moraine lake

The same lake from the helicopter. Do you see the tent of researchers?

Glacier of youth next to the lake. They say it will fully melt in 50 years.

Some places are still untouched by humans. Here widely grows Tien-Shan fir. People do not live here but poarchers are not rare. They not only destroy the local fauna but also may cause a fire.

Fields of Asian buttercups (Ranúnculus).

    Outstanding images – although a few look quite photoshopped for colour, tone, saturation, etc.

    This beautiful subject material spoiled by that childish oversaturated HDR photography. Please find a real photographer to record this beautiful natural resource. Russia is a remarkably beautiful place and should not be spoiled by work like this. Love ER, hate HDR!
