Mongolians travel from far to attend the big summer festival in the capital city Ullanbattor. Many come on horseback and camp near the city. This sunset scene after the horse race represents a wonderful moment of gathering and relaxation after a day full of competition. It also gives a sense of this place, the landscape and its people.
Location: Mongolia, plains near capital city
