Top 5 Silk Road Photos

The following photos are my top 5 of many from the Silk Road Global Project 2014. For some of them, I’m proud of the composition, lighting, etc. For most, though, I’m astounded by the beauty and uniqueness of that land. (You may have already seen some of these on FaceBook.) Check out my top photos from last year too!

GOAT.

I knelt down to take a photo of some passing goats in the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen – a blue-green mountain lake surrounded by snow-capped mountains and massive sand dunes. All of the sudden, one of the goats – hereafter referred to as GOAT – rushed toward me and…licked me!

 

Foot of the Mountain

The thatched roof and mud-brick wall of a traditional house where we ate at the foot of a snow-capped mountain.

 

Yurt

A yurt across a lake from snow-capped mountains.

 

Lamb Kabobs

We grilled our own lamb kabobs one night – possibly the best kabobs I’ve ever had!

 

Comfort in the Storm

I love this couple! In this photo they are standing on a road that inexplicably goes right into a lake as a storm rolls over the snow-capped mountains in the background. Despite the wind and rain and unusual circumstances, they have each other for comfort and support.
