Very nice images Paul.

Thanks for the kind words about the Mongolia photographs. The images in the set are mostly generic nature shots. A person who is bolder/more outgoing around strangers could have obtained extraordinary people shots. The nomadic herding lifestyle of a big chunk of Mongolia's population is incredibly photogenic.

Which makes me think about what makes a good travel destination - photographic opportunities or the general experience (food, culture, accommodation, weather, etc.)? Not sure of the answer on that one although I guess a war zone would favour photographic opportunities but score lower on the general vacation experience.
