At this place, in the middle of the steppes, cows and yaks are milked in a kind of outdoor dairy
You can see the bench where sat the milker and the bucket used for milk, now empty

I know these places, I spent some time in Buryatia (not so far from Mongolian border) The same landscape, the same life conditions. Good presentation of Mongolia!

Hello Maria,you have composed the shot nicely,showing the yaks resting peacefully in a most attractive landscape that is being bathed in a very pleasing light.
A lovely capture.

This photo shows a landscape as I have imagined Mongolia would look like.
I like the contrast between the sunlit places and the parts in the shadow. Those 'black' mountains look wonderful.
Nice presentation with the cattle in the foreground.
Best regards, Paul

so pity that you did not show the actual milking process. People at work make a nice subject for photography. I remember when I was a child my parents were sending me to our family living in the country, they had some cows and I watched them being manually milked and I always got some fresh milk :) almost directly from the cow. These days are over in my country I guess, EU except for many benefits has largely destroyed our agriculture giving preference to rich farmers from Western Europe.
Very interesting photo and collected at a nice side light here.
Very well done,

Looking around, over the vast landscape it doe's have an effect on the way people live there, when the main event of a day would be milking the herd.
Details on picture are immaculate, great DOF and clarity.
We do not see much of Mongolia on TE - so each post is a pleasure to learn about this (remote) country.
Buen fin de semana,

Kind Regards, Ann

This is a lovely pastoral scenery, looking so quiet and peaceful. The colours and light have a fantastic clarity and pureness. It hurts to think of the very hard lives these people live, especially during the winters which can be terrible.

Amazing rural scenery in Mongolia perfect captured.
Very good pov and layout. Deep sunlight creates nice shadows.
TFS and have a nice weekend

I love the naturalness of this scene and your composition from an elevated point of view that allowed you to show the vastness and beauty of the landscape. The morning light is warm, pure and delicious and so are the natural colours you have captured. The textures are strikingly real and I like very much the shadows; the distant ones are so suggestive. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Another typical summer landscape of the steppes depicting the cows waiting to be milked in the early morning golden hour overlooking the sweeping feel of the pastoral scene. And all the more appealing because of it's showing the iImmaculate colour and a real pleasant composition with the little gate and the arrangement of the cows. Form this position we are able have a clear view of the woman's face just to include enough of what she is doing, the story and interest is in the face concentrating on what she is doing. A wonderful shot of rural life from remote corner of Asia. My congrats. TFS

Quite a peaceful and picturesque surrounding. The cows and yaks ready to be milked.Impressive rural scene from Mongolia.The nomadic life of the Mongols is well reflected in your image.TFS.
Keep posting and sharing,

You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see very pastoral scene with rich/green nature as well as a milker who have milked cows and yaks. It's tasteful and impressive in which it's loose slope and low mountain ranges with layeres, too. We can see our basic life style in here.

It's interesting that the cows are in different colors. The milk from here must be organic and nutritious. Thanks for showing us this less visited place in Far East.

Nice scene, with natural colors and a great depth of view. Good sharpness too ! I like the mix of light and shadow, in the background. Thanks for sharing this beautiful landscape with us !
Have a nice evening,

la vista que nos ofreces aquí es profunda, y nos permite apreciar la grandiosidad de este paisaje Mongol.
Además, las vacas y la campesina a punto de ordeñarlas, bajo una luz muy agradable, unas largas sombras, y unos tonos cálidos, crean una atmósfera hermosa con mucha paz.
Un abrazo desde una calurosa (29ºC) Barcelona,
