Images of Mongolia
Mongolia has been one of my most visited countries. Between 2004 and 2009, I made around 10 visits and, in fact, I am scheduled to visit again this September. Of course all these visits were work-related but, nevertheless, I was able to capture a significant number of images though it’s not easy to cover the most important places of Mongolia. The vastness of the place, the sparseness of the population, the limited transportation network and, the most challenging — the Mongolian weather — all contribute to the difficulty. But these are exactly what make the country more enchanting.
In January this year, I decided to consolidate all my photos on the net into this site and started posting photo sets about Mongolia, some of which were taken as early as 2005. The decision turned out to be a good one. My most popular post, Under the Big Mongolian Sky: Echoes from the Steppes, was among those photos sets and my most favorite photo, my blog header photo until now, was taken in Mongolia in 2009. It is my pleasure to share some of those images through this post.
