Actually, there are many many more horses, walking single file in the distance ,winding their way, through from the foothills, of this rocky, arid entrance, away from Yolyn Am Gorge, over on the right. ('Yolyn Am' is Mongolian for "Vulture's Beak", the shape of the gorge). This is the dry, Gobi Desert, after all. About 30c. Not unbearable. These are 2 humped Bactrian camels, in contrast to the one humped camels of West Asia, and North Africa. The fur is shaved off in early Spring by the nomad herders, & used to make carpets, and clothing etc.

As it was only 2 km in, & there were no steep hills, I elected to walk. You can hire these animals if you wish.

I like the picture very much. The colours are wonderful and the shadow of the horse. At second sight, i saw a kind of triangle on the middle of the picture and on top of it the other animals, the composition is very good. Congratulations :)

Hi Chris,

Not a typical desert "camel" shot, the partially green foothills and vivid blue skies are very different for me. The warm fg colors contrast nicely with the sky and the DOF is excellent.


Hi Chris, lovey view ,oh still wilderness to me , the greenery in this otherwise desert landscape brings a little freshness around for those animals to feed on. Mongolia is such a place to discover i admit having never set foot there but would certainly like to !
Thanks for sharing,
