Photographer's Note

Also taken during the 2005 cross Taklamakan-Kuruktag expedition, in the hinterland of Taklamakan, the projected shadow of clouds and the dunes on the great desert that stretching to the horizon leave in my mind for so long...the impression is so powerful that I can still smell the sandy blowing wind......the appearance of life (our team) made the composition even better (well from my point of view, at least)...

A bit more about the Taklamkan:
Its name has the meaning of "the sea of death" and/or "He who goes in never comes out"...however, quite a few expedition, surveying, geological and archaeological projects had been done in these area (and there are alot going on! especially in the lopnur lake region). The ancient silk road also went across it and left us lots of puzzles to solve. There are lots of ancient civilization sites located in the desert, which are invaluable treasure of our great earth, check out my photo for one of these...
