Spring 2007 was the driest recorded in many decades, so the grass is a sickly yellow-green, rather than the lush carpet of emerald green, that it usually is at this time of year. Regardless, I still liked this view towards Terelj Ger Camp for tourists, at right. The tiny white circles, are the nomadic 'ger' tents set in position for visitors. Often mistakenly called 'yurts'. I've already uploaded a close-up view.
The blue sky is natural, & Mongolia is officially called 'the land of blue skies'. Certainly a change from smoggy China & Korea!

immagine particolare con questo sconfinato altopiano.
Mi piace l'inclusione dei blocchi di pietra in FG a dare profondità alla scena.
buona la luce.

An image with immense depth. Well composed taking advantage of the interesting juxtaposition between the foreground rocks. I like the soft light and tones. One can hear the silence of the landscape.

Bonjour, cher Chris,
Quel spectacle ! je suis sous le charme total !
J'ai l'impression d'être sur place et mon regard ne sait plus où se poser tant la beauté sauvage est prenante.
Un grand merci pour cette très belle image.

Perhaps a country or it end of the world!
Where are here the peoples, or lived here nobody.
Nice panorama image with the small rocks between the green grass.
Very well done, TFS.

An image which makes one feel the call for infinite spaces...
The beutiful rocks in the fg are effective in creating a good depth and the clean blue sky is a promise of sunny days...
A fine and evocative photo.

There are not so many uploads from this country here on TE. This one shows clearly the beauty of the landscape here. Interesting rock formations and wonderful colours!

The vast landscapes of Mongolia make me dream. There is little green grass, but the colors of the photograph are nevertheless superb. It is a country which I would like to see. Beautiful image, excellent note. Cheer.
Have a good evening

un paysage austére sous une lumiére et des couleurs saturées, un bon cadrage dans cette photo
pierrefonds (54890) 2010-02-26 14:51
The point of view is taking my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth tyo the composition. The curves of the valley are extr to the composition. There is a good contrast between the colors of the sky, the colors of the mountains and the colors of the valley. Have a nice day.

Photographer in TE, a little less Faceb.
You travel around the world.
Excellent photo with great clarity and depth.
Excellent use of the polarizer.

Superbe paysage du désert mongolien. La vue y est profonde. Tu as su y placer quelques points forts pour le rendre agréable. Note intéressante comme d'habitude.
Merci pour ce partage.
Ciao mon Ami et passe un bon weekend !

If there were not these yurt at the bottom on the right, one would believe oneself on another planet !!! The immense landscape is fantastic. The contrasted light and colors are very pleasant. Beautiful photograph, thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,

Hi Chris, this is such a fascinating part of the world, so under-represented here on TE, so thanks for bringing it to us/ The colours are lovely and strong, the depth superb and I like the composition and framing. Excellent work, have a great weekend, Lisa

Un paysage sauvage de toute beauté, j'aime la présentation et ses merveilleuse couleurs
shevchenko (19051) 2010-02-28 23:52
Good frame to the different type of geographical features within s shoot, naked slope with weeds and trees less, I can imagine how hot the daylight here, nice nature view, distinct photo, well done.
Charo (51210) 2010-03-03 16:38
Fantastico this lonely landscape with its subtle shades of green, I imagine that will be covered by winter snow.
I like the rocks that invade the field, breaking the monotony. Great perspective and depth.
Angshu (54703) 2010-03-08 6:38
The rock formations are interesting creating good focal poinst in the fg. The gers in the far distance are barely visible. Good contrast between the pale green of the grass and the blue of the sky...well done!
gunbud (34066) 2010-03-15 20:14
Another unique landscape from a land so mysterious and far off the beaten path.
The blue sky look very impressive against the lovely rolling green hills and valleys.
janneman (2474) 2010-03-21 4:28
A beautiful composition of this wonderful landscape.
Hope to go there once too!!
foozi (7101) 2010-04-24 21:39
lovely landscape that shows the vastness and peacefulness of this place. The colours are very lovely and it cools the eyes upon seeing it.
the inclusion of rocks and hills is really effective in making the presentation catchy and full of geographical points.
fotka (3257) 2010-07-31 16:13
I like the exotic landscapes in the countries which are not so popular as others. It looks almost like a desert covered with a sand but it is a dry grass. The compo is very good with two rocks in the foreground and the hills in the background. Superb dof, colors, light and sharpness.
