Another great picture from @fearlessandfar! He is out filming in Kazakhstan at the moment and this was taken at the Aral Sea. Once one of the 4th largest lakes in the world it was drained to 1/10th of its original size by the Soviet government for farming cotton. It's now slowly starting to grow under restoration efforts. #aralsea #kazakhstan #filming #bbc #travelshow #onemanandhisboat
