Shot from the base of the Kalyan Minaret in Bukhara, Uzbekistan. The tower is covered with intricate designs, made even more amazing by the simple, sandy color.
The 12th century structure was the only one left intact, due to its beauty, after Genghis Khan’s conquest and destruction of Bukhara. It was later used to execute prisoners by throwing them from the top.

After getting the shot, ran all the way back so we could catch the train to Tashkent. Good memories.
