It was almost dark with few light, some rays of sun appearing and hiding in the hills, creating a rare atmosphere
Suddenly I felt the sound of horses and have time to capture the scene of them going home (yurt)

I like very much the naturalness of this scene, the sense of movement and the eye contact that make the foreground so attractive and interesting. The background is vast and captivating. Its features and the daily life elements we find there speak of a way of living and a sense of freedom that we can only imagine in the western world. I wonder if you could have cropped a little lower at the top. I love the colours and the early evening atmosphere in this magnificent place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

Hi Maria - I would very much love to travel to Mongolia, and I love seeing these wide, sweeping shots of the land on TE. A nice shot of daily life, and showing the deep connection of the Mongolian people to their horses. I know this was an on the fly shot, but I do wish there were a bit more room at the bottom, as a bit of the hooves does get cut off here.

Beautiful scenery of the young man leading three horses through the green pasture. Looking on most of the Mongolia pic. in your gallery, I reckon there are almost no trees on the endless willow.
An inquisitive look you got...

Une atmosphère paisible de fin de journée couper par le pas des sabots des chevaux, c'est très agréable a entendre, de plus la prise est parfaite, j'aime comme ils entre dans l'image, très jolie présentation

It is said that the Mongolians love their horses and it looks to be true in this image.Great mixture of light and shadows over the highlands.I also like the gaze of the rider.Very well shot with a lot of dexterity.TFS.

Une belle scène locale avec un magnifique paysage
Image bien cadrée
On peut dormir dans des Yourtes en France pour 60 € la nuit; c'est un peu cher :)

Lep pogled na konje i zelenu dolinu ...
Dobar trenuta snimka, kontrast, perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa gospodinom sa konjima.
Imajte lep dan, sve najbolje.

This would have been a beauty without the horse and they just make it extra special. Beautiful exposure on those beautiful creatures and the rider with the sense of movement, it's just terrific to get the opportunity to see it through your eyes. So well composed and captured in great warm light light and colours turning this peaceful rural scene into a lovely shot. Well done, TFS

This is an impressive landscape well taken by you. It looks like a high altitude area.... may be 3000Mtrs above sea level.
