After days of the dusty, barren moonscape of the Gobi desert, it was a pleasant surprise, to see such green grass, & so much water. Lake Hovsgol is adjacent to the Russian border with east Siberia & a pleasant place in June / July.
Apologies for the small size, but that's what the film lab in UB scanned them to cd as (597p). I usually get 1,700 pixels length.

Colorful and cheerful, and nicely composed with the boats in attractive position, complemented by the cabin... the sky looks good
pablominto (53744) 2009-07-07 7:44
This is an interesting image with a cartoon-like impression!
All elements are well defined so are the colours...
I notice the special design of the sailboats, probably able of good speed in fair wind..!

Even small I find superb this photograph as well in framing as in the bright colors. The light was very pleasant this day. An aspect of Mongolia which I did not know, thank you Chris.
With all my friendships and with soon,

this picture is quite surprising because it is not representative of Mongolia, and yet it is!!
lovely pastel colors .
BelCan75 (2201) 2009-07-07 10:43
Beautiful shot with such wonderful colours and a lovely landscape. I like those unique looking boats on the water. I would have never guessed that this would be Asia. Wonderful work!
jemaflor (76660) 2009-07-07 12:59
Well composed this colurful landscape with these sailboats, good light well captured.
gilou530 (34) 2009-07-07 13:24
une photo toute simple de ces petits bateaux au milieu d'un endroit verdoyant en bord de lac, lieu idéal pour passer les vacances, lumiére naturelle et couleurs aussi
Royaldevon (23414) 2009-07-07 15:36
It never ceases to amaze me how much 'globe trotting' you have done!
The bright colours of the grass, the sky and the sailboats seem miles away from my concept of The Gobi Desert.
Beautifully composed with a good dof.

This looks like a beautiful painting! I like the composition and the colors are very nice. TFS

casetta e barche a riempire l'inquadratura.
Composizione semplice ma ben realizzata con un'ottimo controllo della luce.
jhm (130684) 2009-07-08 3:35
What a quiet place, without people exactly a place in the world for real vacation people.
Splendid the two small boats.
Composition and presentation are nice.
Very well done, TFS.
AiresSantos (56155) 2009-07-08 3:51
Wonderful vivid colours and POV
Well framed with the boats and the house on left side
Excellent depth and sharpness
barrufeto_77 (28876) 2009-07-08 15:41
The colours, the colours, the colours...excellent! I really like the wide variety.
pierrefonds (52624) 2009-07-08 17:52
The presence of the sailboats has an effect of scale. The point of view takes our eyes toward the mountains in the background which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the house. The luminosity is enhancing the colors of the picture. Have a nice day.
gunbud (34066) 2009-07-08 20:41
Lovely lakeside scene full of lively true colors and exacting details.
The two sails work well against the hills and sky as they sit next to the lovely log home.
dip (22232) 2009-07-08 21:12
the two boats and the house at left make a beautiful composition,
good depth of field,and nice colors too,
Cretense (68675) 2009-07-09 5:11
amazing place, fantastic landscape photography, with a "touch" of architecture and transportation! Great composition and framing, excellent light managment, brilliant colours! Congratulations!
Charo (51208) 2009-07-09 14:55
Very nice place, quiet and calm and brimming with bright colors and very attractive.
Excellent composition and detail.
stego (22556) 2009-07-09 15:10
It's a very nice graphical and colour arrangement. It's curious how everything looks so small. If you hadn't included the cabin, I would think that the boats are toys.
Silvio1953 (109385) 2009-07-10 8:25
Ciao Chris, beautiful view of lovely place with beautiful wooden house and nice boats, wonderful colors, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Bluejeans (64247) 2009-07-11 2:34
Bonito este lugar ao pé deste lago com um verde magnifico faz um bonito contraste com o azul , ficou magnifico esta casa de madeira e os barcos em primeiro plano , bonitas formas geométricas das velas, parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
alvaraalto (5473) 2009-07-11 12:17
Small but beautiful. The landscape can be unexpected green for Mongolia, but the elegant boat also seems unexpected and from another world. Probably not Russian although the colours of the boat on the right side do suppose that.
Cricri (95455) 2009-07-14 5:49
Une image très joliment bien composer avec une jolies variétés de couleurs douces bien agréable a regarder
très belle composition
Have a nice day
Angshu (53667) 2009-07-17 3:13
These small sailboats look like toyboats. Like your framing here with part of the log cabin on the left. The light is bright & good. The sails have a very different type of design!
rikko77 (10849) 2009-07-17 3:18
this is a Country I really love, I cannot avoid leaving a comment on this photo which shows us these wonderful green and blue tones, so typical of Mongolia.
HAve a nice day, TFS!
sacavem (18608) 2009-07-17 4:28
