Up and Away
Walking at the end of the day I discover this beautiful scenery, it was getting dark, all the same it seems that a special reflector was lighting the typical Mongolian scene of a rider jumping up his horse and then disappearing in a fast gallop
It happened so quick that I could not try to communicate with the man or better compose the capture, the blue rope crossing it has a ring where the horse was tied

Cheers for the swift action managed and taken the Mongoliqn rider. We do not see many photos on TE from this (far) country. I am overwhelmed by the stunning green hills, and the beautiful horse in shining brown contrast.
Buen fin de semana,

una splendida vista della Mongolia nella quale uomo e natura concorrono alla bellezza dell'immagine. Un cavaliuere ripreso in una splendida luce, mentre l'immensità della natura si perde verso l'infinito.
Complimenti: un ottimo scatto
Ciao e buon fine settimana

undiscovered beauty.Good to see some pictures from less touristic countries like Mongolia.
What I liek here the most is the combination of so fabulous soft light and excellently saturated colors,which thanks to the light appear to us "warmer".
Have a nice weekend

Une belle lumière de fin de journée baigne cette scène.
Bien sûr dans ce genre de scène, je règle en mode priorité vitesse et je photographie en rafale.

Hello MAria ,
A superb composition . i like especially the contrast of the warm tonalities of the rider and his horse superbly lit , with the green hills in the Bg .

I like this picture very much, I find it captivating. There's a fantastic connection and interaction between the vast green landscape, the softly coloured sky and the man mounting his horse in the foreground. I love how you have frozen this fleeting moment, your picture is a fascinating combination of action and tranquility. At the same time, the warm light falling on the subjects in the foreground make them stand out in a superb way and gives to the scene a theatrical quality. The repeating patterns of the poles are also very intriguing. Sharpness, depth, lighting and rendering of colours are amazing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

I've heard of the expertise of those Mongolian on horseback, nice capture of this guy getting on the horse. I like golden warm glow of the lighting and good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

A very good picture with just a few, but perfectly positioned components. Also the colours and the light are very attractive here. Excellent!

Esplendida imagen, de este jinete mogol que has captado en el momento, en que estaba subiendo a su caballo, por cierto sorprende el poco tamaño del caballo, pero su estampa es fabulosa, has captado una luz muy bonita de final de tarde.
Muy buena la gestion de la luminosidad y de la nitidez.
Disfruta de una buena tarde de domingo.
Saludos muy cordiales.

Excellent shot of the horseman and the beautiful green carpet in the background.Superb light management and clarity of the shot.Excellent composition, very well done, TFS.
danos (94346) 2013-04-17 7:09
nice the view of the place that is covered from the 'green' carpet.The presentation of the native as jumping up his horse this hour of the day makes the image even more effective and unique.The wooden poles creates depth in the image.
marabu61 (10273) 2013-04-17 11:46
Even though you had to take this in a hurry, it is a wonderful composition. The man and his horse forlorn in the empty landscape. The wide sweeping hills convey a good sense of space and wastness of the place and the green is so pleasing in that gorgeous warm light.
have a good evening
s_lush (16134) 2013-04-18 9:06
In this picture, you have managed showing so many unique Mongolian features. The low-sun rays are highlighting the rider and his horse in such a way that both are looking bright and contrasting against the green hills. Excellent shot of this dynamic scene!
Cricri (115557) 2013-04-18 10:42
Belle action prise sur le vif, j'aime la couleur du cheval, d'un brun brillant en contraste avec le vert du paysage, le tout accompagnée sous une belle lumière de fin de journée
thebest (4276) 2013-04-21 6:22
You captured this shot to perfection... I a love the strong colours & the clarity is superb.
Congratulations on a very interesting photo & your well written notes.
Mongolia is a very intriguing destination to visit - therefore I am sure you will have many a fine photo to present.

Quelle belle lumière chaude sur ce cavalier et sa monture
Excellent mariage de couleurs avec le vert de la steppe et le bleu pale du ciel
Une belle image
mohammad_H (9830) 2013-04-23 23:42
The colors in the scene, posing in front of a green pasture, and a beautiful blue sky in the background, and in this space. Ride horses, Excellent clarity
Good day and enjoy every moment of life.
abmdsudi (50568) 2013-04-25 6:28
I like the atmosphere and the warm angled light hitting the landscape and the hunter horseman which add to an interesting image. Good viewpoint and the split second shot, indeed a fabulous action shot and an excellent record of another culture's way of life. Excellent work, Congrats. TFS
jemaflor (93331) 2013-04-27 8:27
Une scène bien présentée, le cavalier est placé sur un point fort de l'image, la lumière est plaisante comme ce paysage sauvage.

Very nice capture from Mongolia ! Perfect pov and layout. But my favorite in this compo is the nice warm dominating light.
TFS and best regards
mkamionka (34663) 2013-05-19 0:30
great scene indeed. The landscape is very interesting already with the grassy field stretching to the horizon. The light was good as well resulting in the long shades here. The horse rider is obviously the highlight here, very well seen and captured!!!
wolf38 (31286) 2013-05-21 6:56
Hello Mary. An interesting photo with strong colors and beautiful light. Yes, the Mongols mastered the art of riding. The photo pleases me very well.
Waylim (25490) 2013-05-30 18:14
Beautiful scene and the inclusion of the rider adds human element and liveliness and the essence of daily life of the people. Love the warm colors and beautiful green hills with white fences.
macjake (64788) 2013-07-02 16:43
as you say, the colors and lighting here is fabulous.
How could anyone not be drawn to this photo.
and hey, for a quick grab photo the end result is very very good indeed!
the landscape in the bg and the sky are sweet aswell.
really enjoying your photo's from Mongolia!
jmdias (61390) 2013-10-08 1:17
muy precioso el sentido de movimiento en la composición. me encanta el contraste entre los tonos dorados del caballo y caballero contra el verde de la pastaje adelante. Hermosa luz. mismo con pocos segundos para sacar la foto ella se quedó muy buena. GPC.
Miguel82 (27281) 2013-10-22 4:41
Another report of the life in Mongolian steppes Maria, that horseman was just riding down of his animal when you took the picture, the green pastures in the bg are magnificent, A brillant picture with high resolution, all the best, have a nice day

Bonjour Miss Maria du Sud,
What a fantastic setting this is, the backdrop landscape looks quite surreal under this magnificent lighting. If it weren't for your main subjects, I would think this was a painting.
Beautifully simple and colorful, you couldn't have hand picked a better moment to capture the essence brimming from nature. The soft shades of blue sky work in perfect harmony with the vast green fields.
I'm not sure why exactly, but the rider and horse look disproportionate to each other, one's too big or too small!? :) Great management of a fast moving opportunity, it may not have been exactly as you hoped, but the result is just as appealing to my eyes! Wonderful shot chere Maria. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Be good.
Friendly wishes from the Northern half,
