Photographer's Note

Almaty is the largest city in Kazakhstan. It was the capital city before the seat of power was moved to Astana. Almaty is still known as the "southern capital".

The name Almaty is widely known to be from the Kazakhs word for apple ("alma"). Or possibly from the Turkish, Hungarian or Monggolian influence (also "alma" for apple).

Enjoyed a beautiful winter scene in the hills overlooking Almaty city here.
