Life and Nature or Southern Kazakhstan { 12 images } Created 21 Nov 2016

After the WWII my grandfather, a Colonel in the Soviet Army, was sent to Kazakhstan to work at Baikonur Cosmodrome, the world's first and largest operational space launch facility. After many years there my family settled in Southern Kazakhstan, where I grew up.
I love coming back to that region in the summer, even though sometimes the temperatures go up to 45C (113F). For me it will always be my home with amazing mountains, vast valleys and endless steppes and desserts.
