Muynak, Aral Sea, UZBEKISTAN

A dry sea bed is all that remains of the Aral. In 1964 the rivers supplying the Aral lake were pumped dry to irrigate cotton crops, the so-called white gold" of Central Asia. After that autumn the tide never returned. Nowadays the water has receded over 100 kilometres from Muynak.
