Mongolia is an amazing country and as soon as you get out of Ulaanbaatar you are in the middle of nowhere, where you can use only dust roads with no signs and no idea where you might be heading. This was our first stop and my first Mongolian Hotel outside Ulaanbaatar. I got up very early in the morning to capture this beautiful scene during sunrise.

These structures are commonly called the ger or yurt. It is one of the two basic forms of portable housing that have been used by the nomads of Tibet, Mongolia and China since the time of Marco Polo. It remains today as the primary form of portable housing in Mongolia and Tibet. The ger of the thirteenth century nomad was a circular structure measuring twelve to fifteen feet in diameter. Its walls were a five foot tall latticework, called a khana, made of willow branches that were lashed together with yak or horsehair twine. Willow poles were lashed to the top of the wall section and were brought together at the top to form a conical shaped roof. A single upright pole supported the peak of the roof.

Gers were covered with several panels of felt made of either goat or camel hair. The gers of thirteenth century Tibet were structurally the same as their Mongolian counterparts, and were covered with felts made from yak hair rather than goat. The number of layers of felt varied, depending on the season. Felts were soaked in either tallow or milk to repel moisture. The gers of wealthier nomads were much larger, and were coated with lime or white clay mixed with powdered bone, again white being a symbol of status. Those who were not as wealthy painted decorations around the smoke hole of their natural brown-black tents. The panels were then secured to the framework of the ger with ropes. The doorway, which always faced south, was covered with a flap of felt, which was either painted or appliquéd with multi-colored designs of birds, animals, vines and trees.

Jordan - Hashemite Arab Kingdom of Jordan - Wadi Rum - UNESCO World Heritage Site - The Valley of the Moon - Spectacularly scenic desert valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan - View from Above

Flying a balloon in Middle East might seem as straight forward thing always possible to do during never ending sunny days, but also Middle East has its share of bad weather days and especially windy days. It has actually taken 6 days of waiting to be able to fly over spectacular Wadi Rum desert, but the wait was worth it.

Althought some people might be tired of sunrises/sunsets, I believe that it is the most dramatic part of the day, therefore I've decided to post another photo that was taken during this time of a day. Colors of this sunset remind me more of painting than photo. I've chosen this composition where the silhouette is very small and give lot of space to the sky/nature, which is exactly how it is in Mongolia - vast areas of nature and pure nothing.

This photo with amazing sky was taken in Ongiin Khiid monastery. The ruined monastery lies in two halfs on the banks of the Ongiin river. It was destroyed by the communist purges of the thirties and is being restored by a number of monks. It is an amazing site and stretches across the valley in the mountainous area around the river. There is not much left from the original place therefore I was happy to capture that beautiful sunset with the silhouette of pavilion.

Canon EOS 350D DIGITAL, f/8, 0.008 sec (1/125), ISO 400, 59 mm
