China - August 27th, 2010

The high peaks of the Altun Shan Range of the Kunlun Mountains, on the southern edge of the Tarim Basin, gradually fade into the sand dunes of the Taklamakan Desert in this orthorectified image of part of the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in China.

Upon opening the full image, many ridges of high sand dunes can be seen at the upper right. The rivers flowing down into the basin from the mountains can also be observed in better detail.
