Haven’t been posting lately as I have been on summer break. Look forward to a lot of travelogue posts about my adventures in Big Almaty Lake, Korgalzhino, Burabay, and Aktau. However my vacation began with horses and dzhigits. A few of my favorite shots of the Astana Day celebrations, one of my favorite holidays because they seem to really bring out a lot of Kazakh culture that doesn’t get displayed on other holidays, like horse sports, hawks and kumys. However it would be fun if there were some equally large scale demonstrations of other cultures. Maybe a little Russian village next to the yurts in the square.
As usual, if you like any of these photos click on them to buy. Or to peruse some of my other favorite shots.
