Photographer's Note

The usual photos of Kalta Minor Minaret are take from the sunny side. Unfortunately that usually leads to some blown out areas and lighter colours. I took this one on the side away from the sun where you get deeper colours and even light.
Kalta Minor minaret is an icon in Khiva but it was never finished which is why it looks so "fat". It was begun in 1851 but when the sultan who began it died so did the project.
