Lake Khovsgol is north west of the capital, Ulan Bator & quite close to the Russian border. It's frozen solid in winter & trucks drive across the ice both ways between the 2 countries.
Taken at Jankhai, a gorgeous promontory, jutting out into nthe lake. These horses belong to the local Mongolian inhabitants who reside in their gers about 1 km away.

A nice capture of these horses against a pleasing backdrop. Good point of view with the grey gravel providing a nice lead-line. Appealing soft colours and good clarity.

good POV and composition, the framing cut a part of the horse on the left, but it's still very good looking

On voit les chevaux. On verra peut-être demain les cavaliers mongols ? ;o)
Superbe paysage encore une fois mon Ami.
C'est paisible et agréable. Très bon !

The scenery is beautiful and add the horses brought to graze and drink you have a winner. Interesting how the swirl of the gravel leads into the lake between the horses. Well done

The grazing and drinking horses make a great FG, and the lake, small trees and hills a superb BG! The clarity and luminosity are excellent. A nice place indeed!

Traditionally horses were probably one of the two most important animals in this area... for all I know they still are!
this is a peaceful scenery as they graze and drink on the shores of this lovely lake...
A well composed presentation, good details!
