Gobi Desert, Mongolia, 2012.
A quick hello from Ulaan Bator, Mongolia. We’ve just come in out of the dust and heat after 8 days off-road in the Gobi Desert. What an adventure! We spent time photographing sand dunes and horse races, the so-called White Stupa cliffs, and miles and miles of desert, horses, goats, and Mongolians. We’ve slept in some really remote sites, some among the more rustic – and barren – places I’ve ever stayed, and yet the two things never missing were beauty and hospitality, both of which Mongolia has in spades. One more full day here, then on the 16th we all go our own ways. I’ll fill you in more later, just wanted to drop a line and say Hi.
Truly Awesome pics.Thank you so much.
Great image, my favorite kind, simple, yet elegant.
Beautiful image. Mongolia is magic… remote places have such a special beauty.
David, post these awesome photos over on Google+! I want to share your awesomeness with my followers 🙂
Curious what you think about this after your trip:
David, what kind of flash (or flashlight?) setup did you use to illuminate the tent?
That’s my favorite time of day.
Really hope to meet you one day.
What a beautiful picture! I’m eager to see the other ones.
And what about the climate right now there?
Can’t wait to see the images. Hopefully some of them will make it into your upcoming book ????
Great photo. Reminds me of your main blog “tent” photo. Waiting for the next post. Stay safe!
Share more.. look forward to hearing stories and perusing photographs made.
A wish-list destination for sure. I had the good luck to camp in the Sahara for a few days and have been trying to get back to that same divine emptiness for a while now. I’m looking forward to your photos. Safe travels!
When we were in Mongolia we experienced the same hospitality and beauty – though we went to the far NW part of the country where there were lakes and trees. And they are not ‘yurts’ but are called ‘gers’ in Mongolia. Awaiting the rest of the photos.
Can’t wait to see your Desert photos! Seriously hoping for a wallpaper from the Gobi. Make it happen for us, David! 🙂
Great adventure. can’t wait to see the picks of the litter.
Sounds awesome! Wonderful photo. Looking forward to more.
beautiful photo, David. I love the stars on the dark blue sky.
That is a beautiful shot. I love the light, and rich color tone. The sky is incredible.

so peaceful/serene… like the repetitive star shape in front of the tent structure (yurt?)
Nice – I’ve just got back from Bolivia. Similarly remote in places (the 120,000 sq km Uyuni Salt Flats are awesome) and stunningly beautiful too.
Although Mongolia has been on my wish list of destinations for some time. Looking forward to seeing some more of your shots from there!
Awesome picture. Can’t wait to see the rest of the images from the trip. Happy shooting!
