Some more from Mongolia:


The wife and I on Lake Khovsgal (which I just found out means Lake Revolution. How Soviet!)



We stumbled across a community felting while driving. They roll up the wool, and it gets dragged behind a horse for 40 laps (approx. 1/2 mile each way).



Camels



Then sheep and goats (but more importantly, asphalt!)

Nice, sharp photos there. What type of lens and focal length did you use?

As you probably know, I've got the Nikon D40X. For many of the pictures from Mongolia, I used the Sigma 10-20 mm with a B+W Warm Polarizing filter (I'm glad I opted to buy it before we went, next time I would consider getting a fish eye lens, too. There could be some really interesting shots with that.). The road shots were f10.
You can check out our Flickr site for all the EXIF info.

Mongolia (In Order! And Now Featuring Corrected Dates!) - a set on Flickr

I'm just catching up on the work I missed, so hopefully over the next month I'll have more photos to put up on the Flickr page. The page is just the jpegs that I threw up quick to give people a taste of the trip. I have to sort through all of the RAW NEFs to see what I really got. (I have to go through more of my wife's pix, too.)

Cool -added you as a contact. That's a nice lens - hold onto it. I thought about getting the Sigma 12-24mm (for my full-frame), but I don't think it takes filters. I still need a wide angle - will probably go with the Canon 17-40.

I am just one step up from complete amateur photographer, so I really appreciate it.
