Master & Hunter

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by heather Dorsey

I was traveling in the Kazahk region of western Mongolia and had the opportunity to witness the traditional eagle festival. The festival is loud and busy, I was shooting another hunter when he suddenly moved from my frame and here was an elder and his eagle caught in a rare peaceful moment. I caught the image seconds before the moment ended and the elder raced off back into the chaos of the festival.

Location: Western Mongolia
