I returned on July 31 from my twelfth trip to Mongolia since 2005. I traveled to a number of places, starting with Arburd Sands ger camp in Bayan-Onjuul Soum, Tov Aimag, about two hours south-west of Ulaanbaatar. The area features a 20km stretch of dunes running east-west, the northernmost extent of the Gobi. I enjoyed capturing the clouds as they drifted by.

A group of camels was nice enough to move through the scene.

This was actually the first one I did as a warm-up. A relatively overcast day in a country that gets 250 days of sunshine a year.
