[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the tourist camp at 'Mirage', Terelj National Park. It's a good & gentle introduction to the nomadic herder tents of Mongolia. There's a restaurant (passable Western style meals), toilets & hot showers, which are not often available, in more remote & arid parts of the country.

This region had its driest Spring in decades in 2007, so the grass is burnt off, & not the usual lush green.

Hello Chris,

Great POV, beautiful colors, excellent control of light!
Congratulations and TFS

I like the low POV here enhancing the peaks altitude.

The shot is very well composed using the rule of thirds sky/land and placing the rocky mountain in the 'golden' spot.
By the way, it is a beautiful rocky mountain including spreaded pines, you should take some shots of it.
I wonder how this place would look like without the human constructions :)
The strong cloud adds a serenity and peaceful mood.


Ciao Chris

The strong colors are here!
excellent visual area and
natural light define everything around you.
Composition and presentation are excellent.



Hello, Chris -
Fascinating - the vibrant colors really jump off the screen. Did you add saturation? The landscape of Mongolia is quite amazing. Extra sharp details. The inclusion of the dreamy cloud formations is nicely done. Good work.

Hi Chris

nice tourist camp with unique tents at the foot of the hill.

Hi Chris,

A very unusual scene, and I like the low POV used. The pathways create an interesting lead-in and I like the 2/3 sky, which should be big as blue as it is. TFS

Best regards,

amazing scen Chris as i would expect from you nice divided shot with the correct amount of sky and foreground well done
tfs regards bryan
