The desert landscapes can sometimes be an unending grey, but Mongolian skyscapes are more dramatic and spectacular than any Hollywood action movie. Extreme shapes, colors and changing formations provide jaw-dropping shows from nature.
Take shelter when you see a sky like this in Mongolia. A drenching downpour is soon to explode.
Painters can’t possibly create the impact of a sunset like this. In countries with vast wide open spaces like this one, you not only see the sunset in the distance but you see, sense and feel the sky that surrounds you and that experience is impossible to recreate on canvas.
This fiery sunset over the famed Gobi Desert in Central Mongolia seemed to last a delicious eternity. That night we wanted to sleep on the ground under the stars. But he stars were so many and so intensely bright that we had to move our bedding into our tents to sleep.
This road ending at the border between Mongolia and Russia accentuates the sometimes electric blue sky, free from any city pollutants and makes us know how pure and pristine nature can still be if we make efforts to preserve it.
