A picturesque scene in Terelj National Park, around 50 km nw of the Mongolian capital of Ulan Bator. Terelj Lodge Ger Camp is on the right in the valley. (not visible here).
Mongolia had its driest Spring in decades, & the grass is not green. This isn't Switzerland. The country also has huge numbers of grazing animals. (horses, sheep, camels, goats, yaks etc).

the POV is excellent giving a fantastic impression of the canyon. I also like the light (and even more the shadows) on the rocks. A wonderful capture of this interesting place. TfS!

in your gallery you show all the various diversity of landscapes of this part of the world,
this kind of rock is visible on each continents, but my first thought always goes to the american "far west"
the composition is well balanced,

beautiful landscape and the counter light works fantastic here. It lights up the trees and makes the definition of the rocks wonderful.

I find it interesting how beautiful the landscapes in Mongolia are and yet they all seem undiscovered. Perhaps because this country is almost always not mentioned in the news. Nice image with good colours and light. The red rocks are very interesting. I just wonder what mineral gives them their colour. Cheers :-)
