A cemetery amid mountains

A cemetery amid mountains


This scenery was photographed on April 22, 2015. It’s the old Russian cemetery above an industrial (in the past) town in the southwestern part of Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. The town is called Kadamjay (Kadamzhay), also known as Pulgon, 30 kilometers south of an ancient Uzbek city called Fergana (Fargona).

Central Asian scorpion

My friend Roman Gilmanov is a great English-Russian translator and photographer. He photographed this nice scorpion on March 8, 2014, in a Central Asian mountainous settlement called Kadamzhay, which is situated in Batken region of the southern part of Kyrgyzstan.
