Mongolia photos – nomads life – “Spring Herd”
Photograph by Tariq Sawyer, National Geographic Your Shot
“I traveled to the Altay Mountains in Mongolia to photograph the Kazakh nomads known for their eagle-hunting traditions,” says Your Shot contributor Tariq Sawyer, whose picture was recently discussed in Your Shot’s newWeekly Wrap feature.
“This photo was taken on the first morning I spent with the nomads. Waking up to experience a harsh spring blizzard, I respected the family’s resilience to the subzero temperatures and freezing winds as they continued their daily routine.
“After completing the morning chores, the family went to tend their herd. As the nomad opened the gate of the pen I saw the sheep forming an orderly charge toward the mountains on the horizon. I went ahead to frame the shot and waited for the nomad, who was frantically herding the sheep, to come into the frame. Just as he appeared the sheep had aligned with the landscape and it all came together.”
