Commenting N.10140 I declared that I finally was showing an "ordinary" view of the Tavan Bogd and, indeed, it was somewhat more usual than the previous ones from the summits of Malchin and of Nairamdal. However, the standpoint was still somewhat outside the normal ways, lying on the steep slopes leading to the ridge at the border with Russia. Here is a truly ordinary view, with the Tavan Bogd captured as it first appears to the visitor coming from the Tsagaan Gol. The standpoint is very close to that of N.10301, the main difference being given by the weather conditions... Of course the attention is drawn by the huge stony beds witnessing the amount of volume reduction that the glaciers have undergone also in this remote corner of the planet. This is especially evident in the case of the largest individual, namely the Potanina.
The panorama comes from 14 vertical pictures, zoom 16-85 at 50 (x1.5) mm, 1/200 sec, f/20, ISO 100. For the 500 pixel version I have heavily shrunk the cut to the mountains, but the version that I like is the one loaded on Panoramio (www.panoramio.com/photo/73435443), giving due space to the fascinating dull sky that characterized a large part of the day. This situation, common in western Mongolia, greatly increases the feeling of being lost in forgotten spaces. And, during the same day, that sky was due to evolve to a rainy mood, before turning to the layout shown in N.9888.
Note: the standpoint can be found marked in N.10140, at 145°, and in N.9888, at 130°.


Fantastic! Super!

Seems like an endless source of wonderful panos that you have brought back from this trip and that is now somewhere on your hard drive. Glaciers seem to be shrinking in this part of the world as well. Cheers, Martin
