If you value pristine nature, this image of wild meadow flowers and sky-high mountains may be made just for you!
Relish the view, take a deep breath, and picture yourself on a grassy slope in Mongolia, taking photographs, what else.
It is late June in the Altai Mountains, at 2900 m (9500 ft.) altitude. You lie on your stomach trying to get both flowers and summits inside the frame. You feel awkward. The ground is damp with dew, and it seems to explode in your face with smells of earth, grass, and life itself.
It is overwhelming. You are unable to move, not even to exhale, you stay put on your elbows, the finger on the release button, the sun on your back, the world around you standing still.
You cannot know it yet, a heavy snowstorm is to come down in the afternoon.
Despite being the 18th largest country in the world, Mongolia is the least populated one. It sounds like plenty of space, and it is, even if nothing compared to the Mongol Empire of yore united under Genghis Khan.
The modern Mongolia is sandwiched between Russia and China, the only two countries it shares borders with. Its landscape is very varied, steadily rising from the Gobi desert in the south-east, over the central grasslands to the taiga forests in the north and mountains in the north-west. The latter reach 4,374 m (14,350 ft) with the Khüiten Peak in the far west.
Chances to get there are scarce. The only international airport is located in the vicinity of the capital, Ulaanbaatar. Direct flights operate from Germany, Turkey, Russia, China, Korea, and Japan. The list is exhaustive.
Alternatively, you can arrive by train from both neighbouring countries on an extension to the Trans-Siberian railway.
To get into the mountains will require flying inland to Ulaangom or Ölgii, and continuing overland from there. Given huge distances, poor road conditions and overall weak infrastructure, travel on your own can prove quite challenging. Organised hiking and trekking tours available from specialised operators are probably your best options for experiencing Mongolia in person.
Or, with much less money and no pain whatsoever, you can treat yourself to a fine art print of this spectacular image!
Good question! Here are some reasons to help you decide.
The image is soothing rather than tempting and alluring, but this is exactly what makes it attractive.
The distant mountains provide a protective backdrop while leaving enough room for the scenery to unfold. Purple and orange wild flowers dotting the meadow add just enough zest to the picture. The slanting perspective of the low angle shot makes the image brim over with senses and emotions towards the viewer, and enclose, embrace you with its life-affirming attitude.
This refreshing piece will be immediately at home in all surroundings close to nature, in every interior filled with light and air. Keep it nearby, ready to recharge your batteries when needed.
Make your home something people talk about. Put these wild meadow flowers together with surrounding mountains on the wall – a hanging system is included with every mounted edition – invite some friends and see what happens.
Chances are, it wouldn't take long before your print ends up as a conversation piece. Let your good taste be the topic—and enjoy it to the full.
