you must be a professional photographer because you certainly get around our world & that is wonderful!!! I'm in awe of your photos.

No just an enthusiastic amateur, not scared of picking up his backpack and go somewhere beautiful.

in China?

Placebo on April 27, 2007

Do you mean the photo or the "somewhere beautiful"?

The photo was taken in Mongolia, and China, although very polluted, can still be very beautiful as you can see here:

just as I saw it too, only whiter. It was snowing in the desert, how is that?

Placebo'nun fotoğrafları gerçekten güzel. Ancak ben de dullgrey'in görüşüne katılıyorum. Ülkem olan Türkiye'de sıradan mekanlarda bile çok daha güzel manzara ve objelere herzaman rastlanır. İnsanları Türkiye'yi görmeye davet ediyorum!..

I really love this picture! Shame it's not higher res because I would have set it as my desktop wallpaper ;)

This picture has nothing to do with the Gobi desert. It is located in the steppe (grass land zone) at about Choir, not too far from Ulaanbaatar. The grasslands are also yellow at autumn.
