Photographer's Note

Everywhere you turn in Khiva Ichan Kala;
main streets, back streets, there's something interesting to catch the eye.

Just a small view of shadowy passage of the old city ringed entirely by its ancient 10m high adobe walls, and a vital resting place for caravans preparing to cross the hostile Kyzyl Kum Desert to Bukhara and Samarkand in ancient times.

The site is crammed with historic buildings and regarded as an excellent example of central Asian Islamic architecture whose bands of blue tile and brown-coloured brick have an ancient air - which is an absolute highlight here.

Setting: 190 mm, 1/125 sec, F5.6, ISO Raw 200, 1350 hrs
