Late afternoon light at Kyrchyn Jailoo, the place where shepherds take their animals to graze at altitude in the summer months above Cholpon Ata, Kyrgyzstan. This image is from a sort of open-air festival celebrating nomadic and Kyrgyz culture at the World Nomad Games. Of all the beautiful yurts I saw today (there are 300+ from across the region) this one is my favorite from the outside. Although they may appear small at a distance, yurts are surprisingly large once you go inside.
