Emilio Garcia from Pleasanton, United States

interesting picture of this extraordinary landscape. I wonder what they use to fire their kilns? You don't see much wood around.

@Emilio Garcia: Many thanks for your comment! This sort of kiln is fired by coal. Its very difficult to see, but those tubs they are sitting on hold the coal. The coal comes from north Afghanistan by truck.

An intriguing shot…

@Calusarus: The whole thing they are standing on is the kiln... near each heap there is a metal plate which they open and drop coal in to the fire beneath...it is very hot up there!!
