Traffic jam at the pass- I can still hear the deafening bleating sounds of the sheep and goats as they gathered at the pass on their way to the Spring camp during the exhausting 150km winter migration. Somehow walking in the midst of them made the -35c temperature feel a bit more bearable. #extremeliving #extremetemperatures #natgeoyourshot #reportagespotlight #documentaryphotography #documentaryphotographer #worldnomads #nom#nomadiclife #westernmongolia #kazakhofmongolia #livestock #travelphotography #goatsofinstagram #sheepofinstagram #mongolia #wonderlust #nomadi #eaglehunters

I had the chance to experience my first brush with snow enroute to the high ridge on Türgen mountain; the ridge itself standing at 3,600m or 11,811ft. . For a girl who had never seen snow, this was a glorious dream come true & counted amongst several other "firsts" experienced whilst in Mongolia - namely horse riding, various foods eaten, the ticking off a major bucket list item &, whilst standing on the ridge on Türgen, was my first time at what is classed to be very high altitude & therefore the highest point I've ever hiked up to. . Though I was walking through & play with snow at various stages of the ascent, I only saw snow in the process of falling for a brief time as I climbed. . This was particularly magical as snowflakes are completely carefree in the way they chose to fall & I felt this as I watched. I always long for that sort of feeling of freedom with a strange, intoxicating thirst, craving it with my whole being & guarding it closely when I am able to experience it. The snow filled this craving in the same way that the roaring crash of ocean waves, the blissful power of thunder & the mighty glow of thunder, & the relentless battering of the winds do.These examples of the untamed, wild & raw aspects of creation are some of the only real free things on earth & among my list favourite things. Not that I was in the midst of a raging snowstorm or had the wind wuthering around me, but the gentle caress of pure snow contained that same power in each tiny snowflake as does the smell of forest trees, the lungs filling withunadulterated air, the warmth of the sun on the back & open spaces filled with grass, wildflowers & calm waters. Nature has its' mood & each beautiful in its' own way. . In that first, satisfying step into pristine, unmarked snow I became the adventurer leaving his first mark on virgin land. In that first snow encounter I was filled with wonder at the beauty of nature, touched by the freedom it fed to my soul & inspired by the joy found in small things. . To say that nature has the ability to touch the soul, in both its' wild & tranquil ways, is an understatement for it can transport you into new worlds that will forever change you. . . .
