Photographer's Note

This was taken in late afternoon light in Tagong Grassland, it was peace and quiet when a brief splash of light hit the landscape with dotted of horses can be seen grazing in the distance undulating hills. I often wonder if I spent too much time alone waiting for the right light but this particular shot paid dividends though. Some clouds do warrant special attention I believe, and this was one of those. It was surprisingly incredible, watching the huge clouds forming overhead...

Tagong Grassland, home to proud Tibetan Khampas in remote Western Sichuan occupy a string of flat bottomed valleys on a 3700m high plateau all surrounded by magnificent snow peaks. It is an amazing landscape, a vast expanse of green meadow lying beneath the sacred Yallah Mountain and dotted with Khampa herdsmen, yaks, tents, alpine flowers and prayer flags.
