Not sure if this is a religious site or a simple, common fireplace. Whatever, the background view was gorgeous & the blue, blue sky of Mongolia was marvellous, especially after the generally smoggy white skies of China & Korea.

Hi Chris...
Beautiful shot with so nice colors...
Beautiful panorama...

What? We got piles of this stuff all over TEXAS! The freeze has killed thousands and thousands of trees and plants....in fact...my YARD has one of these religious symbols! haha! Nice super wide shot Chris! I love the clouds in the distance!

Bom dia Chris,
Only this fantastically blue sky would justified this picture. But in addition there is a magnificent depth and a beautiful landscape.

Hi Chris,
A wonderful landscape shot from an interesting POV. I like the preparation of a bonfire among this greenery!
Marvellous light and sharpness.
A considerable DOF with a nice formation of clouds beyond the hills at the BG.
A very neat presentation.

Hello Chris,
Amazing details and DOf in this lovely saturated colors of this beautiful landscape of Mongolia,beautiful POV and again wonderful DOF with great sharpness and details,well captured and well done my friend.
Best Wishes

Hello Chris,

I believe we should be wishing you a very 'Happy Birthday' today. 21, are you? Hope it's a great one!

I have been creating religious sites like this, too.
I would have placed it in the compost bin but, sadly, I would need 3 compost bins to accommodate it all!

You have chosen a fine pov to make the most of this beautiful scenery. The wooden pile is nicely positioned in the frame, the trees on the left, point the way downhill, where the view across the valley to woods, and the distant hills, is vast and uninhibited.
It looks refreshingly clean, Chris; no smog here.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Chris,

This is a gorgeous view, as you mentioned in your note the sky is such a rich blue. Sharp as a tack, and the DOF is superb. The pile of sticks definitely adds interest to the shot.

Best regards,

Hi Chris,

Ciao Chris

The colors scream here in this landscape!
It's like I do, my colorful world!
Excellent composition and a wonderful blue sky!
Lovely realization, also of quality also.
Composition and presentation are very well.

Best regards,


Hi dear Chris,
A wonderful panoramic view and good colours and saturation.


I'll second you on these clear skies after Beijing, Guangzhou and Shanghai.. In fact the only time I saw clear sky in Seoul was during a winter freeze, summertime it's horribly murky..

Nice shot, great vista - I guess there're a lot of strange things in places like Mongolia. Definitely on my to visit list. How did you travel around?

Bonjour Chris

Quelle superbe panorama!!
Ces étendues de plaines sont vraiment immenses!!
J'aime les couleurs et la lumière de ce magnifique paysage de Mongolie!!
Bravo et TFS!

Hi Chris, strong and sharply beautiful contrasts; that Pentax lens seems to be great, I also use a Pentax and love it.

The landscape is huge and the branches pile adds a human touch.
The gradient of blues in the sky looks unbeatable, no noise nor strange hues at all.


Ola Chris Jules,
Good shot,beautiful place.

What a wonderful depth !

A belated but warm "Happy Birthday" !!!

Hi, Chris -
Incredible POV to take in the sweeping vista. Your settings gave you perfect exposure and sharpness throughout the entire frame. Warm and vibrant colors. The teepee is well placed in the frame for a pleasing composition. Nice work!

Ciao Chris, lovely and peaceful landscape, interesting teepee in beautiful natural ambientation, wonderful colors, splendid perspective, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Chris,
Beautiful landscape with amazing colors and light,
Excellent POV./DOF. well presented and composed picture..
very well done.

Hi Chris,

The point of view is leading my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. The mongolian teepee is he;ping in framing the scenery. The nice blue sky is ending a light which is enhancing the colors. have a nice day.
