The sun setting near Song-Kul, a lake at an altitude of 3,016m in Naryn Province, Kyrgyzstan. The lake is surrounded by broad summer pasture and mountains. We stayed in a small camp with a family tending their animals. Kul means lake.

Spectacular image, it is divides in two very different parts, the lighted and warm fields and the dramatic sky. Nice view of the horses pasturing in liberty. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Chris. Yellow steppe horses, mountains and more sky. So I imagine the vast steppes of Asia. Composition, light and colors are perfect.

This is extremely lovely Chris. The light across the grassland brings out the buttery colour which contrasts so well with the grey tones in the sky. The composition with string of horses is simple but well conceived allowing the loneliness of the location to shine through. Super. Warm regards Rosemary

I first looked at your picture and thought it was taken in my home state of Montana in the U.S.. This a very special capture with such good composition with color and detail. Truly a feast for my eye... Thanks for sharing!
