An unusual rock formation at the back of Mirage Tourist Ger Camp, within Terelj National Park. Mongolia is justifiably known as the land of blue sky. Terelj is about 50 km north east of Ulan Bator, the national capital. The rocks are covered in yellow green lichens.

A good vertical view of this geological feature. Have you adjusted the colours in post processing, or is the sky colour the result of a manual option on your camera? Good use of light to improve the texutre in this image, I think direct light would have made this shot harsh, you manage it well.

Olá Chris, lovely set of the interesting rock formations and most attractive contrast with the wonderful cloudy blue sky. Excellent balance of the three stripes in the composition and wonderful colors.

this rock formation against the blue-white sky has a great contrast. Excellent textures and colours. The composition creating diagonal lines gives depth in that more frontal upview.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

The two green trees are small against the big
rocks but care for extra colour, also a wonderful clouds at the sky.
Nice composition too.
Have a nice day,

Great scene! Good contrast and colours of the sky and rocks!
Very good compo!

Good oblique presentation of the rocks,which are
springing upward and well defined by the clear sky, albeit a little on the oversaturated side.
I saw blue sky in the Andes,but never that intense.
Have a good day

Beautiful one with great colors. Blue of the sky with the fantastic white clouds, reddish of the rocks and the colorful lichens. A very nice one.

Good view of the strangely shaped rock outcrops. Strong contrast & excellent contrast with the sky. The good light helps bringing out the textures well. Good shot!
Best of luck for your relocation

Very beautiful composition. I like the excellent POV. The rock's formation take a look at the sky. Very nice colors and textures, great light.
Have a nice week!

The first things I have noticed on this shot were the beautiful colors, the optimum light and the great DOF that allows the foreground to get a lot of relief. Then, I think that the graphism itself is really nice as weel. the beautiful central diagonal band which contains the sandstone layer is really beautiful and makes the picture very dynamic.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi Chris. This has a very strong appeal. The upward-looking POV and the beautiful stark blue sky provides an ideal backdrop. I like this a lot. TFS. Murray.

When interior decorators look at a wall, they prescribe three paintings, three photos -- always an odd number. So it is with this simple but effective composition of your "Three Rocks." Of course, Mongolia is as exotic to my world as is Mars, and I am grateful that you are able to see Central and Eastern Asia as well as you do.

Hi Chris. Nice capture. Good POV and composition add to the height of the formations. Well saturated colours and good definition in the sky. Well captured and thanks for sharing.

The contrast gave prominence to this beautiful rock formation with the clouds giving their full support. I enjoyed the clarity and the few shrubs that soften the scene. Well done!!
All the best.
