Photographer's Note

A Mongolian man and his horse walk past an Ovoo in Terelj National Park, Mongolia.

Ovoos are sacred mounds of stone topped with blue khadags (prayer scarves). The ritual is to walk around an Ovoo three times in a clockwise direction, toss an offering such as a stone on to the mound and make a wish.
