Ice Ice Baby

2 November 2010

Near Yazd

The conical structure in the shot is an ancient ice house. Inside it descends almost as far into the ground as you can see above ground. Behind the wall on the right is a pool which would be filled with water. Overnight this would freeze and in the morning the ice would be cut up and stored in the ice house.
