Amongst the sparse shrubs, rocks and drifting sand dunes of what is also known as the Persian Desert, enormous salt basins glare up at the sky, their shimmering crystals created by the high-speed evaporation which takes place here during the day. Many of the most arid regions at the southern end of this desert are completely untouched and come alive in the evening, when cheetahs, leopards, herds of gazelles, sand foxes, birds and reptiles venture out into the cooler air.
