One of the few shots from Mongolia that I have, at 1,700 pixels, meaning a full size is possible here. This is one of the 3 tourist ger camps near Turtle Rock, in Terelj National Park, near Ulan Bator. I think it's Khan Tourist Park. The others are Mirage where I stayed, & Terelj Lodge.
Mongolia is justifiably known as the land of blue skies. Mongolians call their circular tents 'gers'. It's only the 'reindeer people' in the northern mts, that use the triangular, wigwam shaped 'yurts'.

vista che si apre su questo verde campo con un bel cielo blu sullo sfondo.
Ottimo il FG che dà profondità all'immagine.

Un paysage intéressant avec un bon cadrage, une bonne idée d'avoir incorporé les rochers en 1er Plan.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

voila un pays ou j'aimerai marcher du coté de l'althai, un coin super avec des couleurs bien saturées et une grosse profondeur avec le rocher du premier plan, un belle réussité

A good framing using the rock, these Mongolian series stand out in your gallery due to their special colors, the dry air does wonder
Have a nice day JY

I particularly like the colour contrasts in this interesting composition. The rock framing gives a good sense of depth. The lovely sky contributes to the mood.

I always find those photos from the far away lands and desolated landscapes most interesting Chirs. As here with a good inclusion of foreground landscape leading the sight in to the camp in the back. Most interesting place.
denisn72 (8300) 2009-07-24 6:10
I like the way you framed the photo. The distribution of light is interesting as well as the contrasts. The blue of the sky seems so pure! I must admit that is a great place to camp. Thanks for sharing! Good work!

des couleurs un peu poussée, comme cela m'arrive,
mais un résultat séduisant. Un paysage calme bien choisi.
Best from Belgium.
pierrefonds (65320) 2009-07-25 5:39
The sky is impressive, it is sending a light which is enhancing the colors and the clouds giving some shadows to the scenery. The rocks in the foreground are framing well the camp. The point of view takes our eyes toward the camp then toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. have a nice day.
marietom (34609) 2009-07-25 14:47
as usual, nice colors. The composition is good too, I'd like to go there !

Hi Chris. Very nice scene. Great contrast between the blue and the green. Nice light and sharpness. Good work. Paulo

Good window you created with the rocks in the FG...The wooden huts & the gers are located in a nice saucer like valley with fine sky above & shadows cast on them by clouds. Beautiful!
devimeuxbe (58557) 2009-07-30 12:39

It is always a pleasure to see and image from Mongolia, one of my dream destinations. So many places to see, so little time and Money. Hopefully one day soon. Great shot, beautiful light, good colors, great clarity. nice composition view open field and big sky. the way I image it to be. Thanks

Superb! This photo stood out to me. I would like to go visit there one day. Your picture is clearly in focus throughout. I like your POV, how you used the rock to frame the photo. The Yurts are placed in a eye pleasing way as well.
PS Yes that is a rough neighbourhood. I was glad I didn't go there by myself. But overall still a safe place to live.
nikkitta (17066) 2013-09-26 18:02
This is where I stayed, full name is Gengis Khan Touristic Camp (not a good one), I perfectly see the place to roast lambs ( at the back in blue) and the classical gers
I stayed on June and have blue sky only some hours
Great and creative way to frame this capture
