Photographer's Note

thanks for your critiques, first of all, let me apologize if the picture isn't so much clear.
but for my purpose, I didn't have a better one, then forgive me & read the explanation :
the oval-shaped "building"on the right is called "Yakh-chaal"which means refrigerator.in which people made ice & kept them until summer in old times.
Method :there were a big round whole on the base of this type of monument,10 inch. deep, in which they pourred water ,that turned into ice with the help of cold nights of desert.
how they "keep" the ice until summmer & during it ?
the spicial architecture of it, calculating shaddows of the walls, angle of sun-rays made the ground "stay" cold, so the ice wouldn't melt...
