The Singing Dunes, Mongolia, 2012

A little later than usual but I’ve given myself a little more freedom now since there’s no calendar on these things. Hope it’s worth the wait. An hour after I shot this, the photographer in this image walked up to me and apologized, telling me he thought he owed me a beer for getting into my shot. I told him he was the shot and it was probably me that owed him a beer. This last trip to Mongolia was a fantastic adventure!

  1. The endless miles of nothing are very dramatic! When you find something in the nothing, it makes a great photo. As expected, you did a fantastic job, even when you photographed nothing but the expanse!

  2. Love the photograher perceptions here… his and yours… the main thing was beer was paid out… I hope… and chuckles shared.

    Stefan – Enjoy your Ligurian adventure, and treat your lovely wife to a nice bottle of Vermentino or Cinque Terre, followed up with Sciaccetra. Safe and happy journeys to you!

  6. Love it. Something about the photographer in the photo gives a bit of humor to the image. Great.

  7. Hi David,
    You are right, he is the picture. I tought perhaps it was Jeffrey ????
    But my main question about this story is…..could you organise a fresh cold beer for him?
    Gr stefan
    Ps we are in Italy again now not for a WTF Liguria experience but for holiday. Do you remember the picture I presented for our daily discussion. The Italian woman walking in a narrow street in Genua and at the other end a couple, he taking a picture backwards and she like…….how long do I have to wait ????

  8. You are right, he MAKES the shot! I love the light in this, not so strong as you usually see, subtly highlighting the form of the dunes.

  9. Hi David,

    as always, this is a fantastic picture. Thanks for sharing it with us. When i set it as my new wallpaper at my PC in the office i get a little bit jealous.
