"Zaisan Tolgoi (Head) - located on a hill near Ulan Bator city. It represents the Russian and Mongolian heroes, who fought together during WWI and WWII." (From Wikitravel)
The Tuul River is in the fg. I like the reflections & peaceful nature of this spot, just a few kilometres from the traffic snarls of UB.
Another first entry on TE. Now, I wish that I had visited the Buddhist temple, to the right of the memorial.

excellent POV. I love this opened area between the trees with natural framing of Zaisan Tolgoi and its beautiful reflection. Excellent light and natural tones. All in all beautifully composed.

Looks a very peaceful spot. I like the point of view through the trees and the reflection captured in the foreground water. Very pleasing natural colours and excellent sharpness.

Bonjour, mon ami Chris,
Je ne pensais pas qu'il existait des oasis en Mongolie. Tous les reportages sur la Mongolie présentent de grands espaces sauvages.
La beauté de ce lieu est manifeste. Très belle mise en image.
Un vrai régal.

Hi Chris Great light and colors here, and a well chosen POV to get the hilltop reflecting in the water, all naturally framed in between the trees. Sharp and clean.

Good shot of this memorial, looking through the trees. I would prefer a tighter crop around the central gap and the view beyond, with less distraction from the trees on each side, but it looks pretty good as it is too. Nice work!

A diferent POV for sure with that natural frame so...excellent idea!

An excellent angle to show the memorial of the fallen soldiers. The peacefullness of the river scene is reward for the fallen soldiers.
Great colors, shapes, and lighting...
