Mongolia Picture Journey – July 2022

This excursion experienced initially been planned for July 2020, then COVID occurred. I am eternally grateful that people hung on to their reservations for two decades and we were being able to have an amazing excursion!

Our aim was cultural, even though we did have a extremely couple wildlife sightings including a critically endangered saiga antelope that galloped past us in a flash.

We ended up ready to keep with and photograph the iconic Kazakh eagle hunters and even crashed a marriage ceremony. Close to Khovd we went to a classic competition called a nadaam, with dusty, spirited horse races, and beefy wrestlers who produced quick do the job of troopers who have been attending. Lastly, as part of the group split off to photograph the endangered takhi (Przewalski’s horse) I was capable to satisfy with shamans. In the Soviet era, Shamanism (and Buddhism) were being repressed, but the historical cultural traditions are making a resurgence.

The vast steppe and arid mountains of Mongolia are outstanding. It is awe-inspiring to witness a rainstorm sweeping across the land and passing clouds dapple the hillsides. It is truly one particular of the previous areas where by one can sense so smaller still invigorated by nature.
