Hello Chris,
Interesting composition with the yaks in front of the amazing rock formation!
I was about to add this the Three of a Kind theme but then I notice they actually are four!
Fine colours & good details...
Greetings,
Pablo -

Very interesting countryside with these unusual animals. I like your title. :-) Amazing rock formation. It could be a little like a yak too. Well done.

TFS!

I see why the rock is called like that! But invert the view in the horizontal axe and we have a big head of monster who could eat the 3 with not a so big effort :) But look... You hurt a little one of them with the title who must to be have Yak Yak Yak Yak! Cause there is another one who turn grey. But is it the same kind?

Hi Chris,
The rock looks like an animal too
Fine composition to show the yak an turlle rock in one shot

Hi Chris,
a wonderful place, and I realy saw the turtle - now I read that t is also called turtle-rock, that's lovely. Must be a great place to visit.
I plan to visit Laos next year, and of course my beloved Thailand. I hope it will come true.
Bye and greetings

Hello Chris

Beautiful visual and capture.
I once could see a news section in TV on Mongolia and these encourage that they use.
Great landscape! Now the rocky formation is too much. She has the form of a turtle, I find.
Congratulations

I like the title, its really funny! Your photo is nicely composed, giving a sense of scale of the huge rock against the Yaks. Good clarity, detail and the lighing very good also!

Hi Chris. Good to see such a lot of yaks together, usually just one carrying supplies. This is a well composed photo with the large rocks behind to enhance it. TFS. Murray.

Very interesting shot:)

Sorry I missed this beauty before, Chris. It's a nice one, the yaks grazing in front of that weird rock, which really looks like a turtle. The sunlight looks quite harsh, still the overall exposure is quite good.

I like the title Chris!! And I can see where the Turtle Rock got its name too. What an amazing formation. You've lined the Yaks up very well too - well trained!

Bonjour Chris
Une vue bien spectaculaire de ce parc Terelj qui met en vedette la grosse tortue.
La présence des yaks est en parfait accord avec le principe de trois en composition.
Merci de faire découvrir cet intéressant morçeau de la Mongolie.
Amicalement.

Hi Chris
Yep that sure is a really slow turtle. Me think you missed a Yak in your title - looks to be four Yaks. Interesting colors in the sky - was there a storm brewing? TFS

What a rock! I love yaks. Are they shy, they seem to be in Tibet and Nepal. Great scenery. I had only seen the prairies in Mongolia before.
