Baku's Winter Wonderland
Photo Essay - A Perspective from Our Readers

On December 10, 2002, a rare blizzard blanketed Baku with more snow than the city had seen in the previous 20 years. Via email, we invited our readers to send us photos that would capture the spirit of this beautiful phenomenon. From more than 150 photos that we received, we've chosen these scenes to represent a glimpse of Baku's Winter Wonderland.

Congratulations to these fine photographers. For our Spring 2003 issue, we invite readers from all over the world to send us photos that capture the joyous celebration of Novruz 2003 (Ancient Rite of Spring, March 21-22). Send your photos to Azerbaijan International Editor no later than March 23, 2003. Send digital format at 300 dpi, 7 inches wide. Contact us for more details:
