Photographer's Note

No polarizing filter this time due to low light levels & an overcast sky. Taken from the Beijing to Ulan Bator train, a 30 hour trip, that reaches the border around midnight. This was taken the following morning, deep inside east Gobi province or 'aimaag'.

"Aimag (Mongolian: Аймаг) is a Mongolian and Turkic word for a tribe. It is also used as a term for country subdivisions in Mongolia and China. The name of the Aimak peoples in central Afghanistan derives from the same root."

There is a little fg motion blur, as the train was travelling around 70km per hour. I used as high a shutter speed as possible, to freeze movement as far as possible (1/500 to 1/1000 sec)

This is the first upload ever, on TE, from this area of Mongolia.
