Padanjirin(what we call), one of the most remote and dynamic desert world over, is a breathtaking experience in my life. The highest sand dune is 1,606m above sea level that looked impossible to conquer, but our jeep made it after several attempting.
There was only one guesthouse in the cneter of the desert where we stayed 2 nites for taking photos. The generator of the house provided us with the power only 2 hours at night.

What a wonderul image, love those shadows and the line that the animals and their leader form along a diagonal. Great varied texture between the dunes in the foreground and the ones in the back. I also like that there is almost just one palette of colour in various shades of brown. Your experience sounds great.

Hello there - What a super POV, you have captured the camel train so well, I like the way their progress across the undulating dunes and across the dune rim is so clearly shown. The shadows add an nice touch. I had no idea camels came in this variety of colours either! TFS and best regards Rosemary

What an amazing experience you had. The picture is beautiful with excellent exposure and sharpness. The camels with the man leading are beautifully captured and their shadows really make this a superb image.

An incredible destination which made me jealous, a tasteful composition with a curve of camales and fascinating shadows, and a perfect pose of the model.

Beautiful image! Wonderful light, beautiful! I never imagined there was a desert with lots of sand dunes in Mongolia! What a nice surprise! Really nice your picture!

Je découvre cette splendide photo, dans laquelle j'apprécie le cadrage, la lecture de l'image suivant la caravane jusqu'au meneur, ainsi que les ombres de la caravane. Ceux-ci s'affichent de façon déformée sur la dune. L'image est très nette et précise dans les détails comme la fourrure des bêtes ou les vaguelettes du sable.
Un beau travail, bravo, et excellente journée.

Great dynamic photo depicting the movement and hard work. The person, camels and their shadows are very well placed in the frame.
