Muynak, Aral Sea, UZBEKISTAN

The rusting wrecks of a fishing fleet that used to comprise 300 ships lie on a dry sea bed. In 1964 the rivers supplying the Aral Sea 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.
