Mongolia... Vast steppe, rough terrain. We were driving here hundreds and hundreds of kilometres meeting not a single soul on the way. Danielkordan.com #mongolia #olgii #Nikon #gitzoinspires #luminar #skylum
Simplicity of the lines. Last smooth rays of light draw incredible patterns on the sand. Danielkordan.com #mongolia #Gobi #gobidesert #Nikon #nikkor 14-24 #gitzoinspires #luminar #skylum
We found this little place once scouting in Mongolia near Flaming cliffs. And straight away we named it "valley of walking trees". Well, like in every fairy tale, trees become alive in the night. So we come again deep in the night to check them out! Of course the main challenge in shooting Ents is to talk them to stay still for 20 s of exposure :) Danielkordan.com #mongolia #Nikon #nikkor 14-24 2.8, 20 s, iso 4000. #luminar #skylum
First 2 nights at Gobi desert were without a single cloud in the sky. On one hand we made beautiful night series, on the other sunrises we very quick. And only last morning we were fortunate to meet this tender pink sunrise. It was interesting to see how fast the color of the sand is changing with the change of ambient light.

Desert curves. Gobi desert has it's own charm. Little sand dunes merging one into another, mountains above and deep blue sky... We spent here 3 days hunting for perfect lines and soft sunset light. Danielkordan.com #mongolia #gobidesert #gobi #Nikon #nikkor 70-200 mm
"The Silk road", lines of Gobi desert are like threads of silk, shining in the sun... Danielkordan.com #mongolia #gobi #gobidesert #Nikon #nikkor 70-200 mm, #luminar #skylum
This morning was very special. Mountains seem to be suspended in the air. At the moment I just leave my camera on a tripod and sit down to enjoy the pristine landscape of Mongolian Altai mountains.

For my photography group in Mongolia I've organized a "mini festival" with 20 eagle hunters. All of us, photographers and hunters, enjoyed this event. It is in their blood - to enjoy the fast ride across the steppe, along with their Golden Eagles. Danielkordan.com #mongolia #eaglehunters #Nikon #nikkor 70-200 mm, #luminar #skylum #gitzoinspires
The story of Eagle hunter continues. I was fascinated by tradition of Kazakh people and the bond between them and Golden Eagles forming for years. In the next posts I'll highlight best moments of my photography expedition to one of these families. Sadly there are not so many hunters left, but they still keeping this tradition in generations.

One of the most stunning moments of my Mongolia expedition - this photoshoot with golden Eagle hunter under full moon. It was like being on a movie set, where dim distant moonlight fill the silhouette of the rider with his Eagle.

"Patagonia of the North" or "Big walls" area in South Greenland - legendary remote Tasermiut fjord. Stunning place to discover. Danielkordan.com #Greenland #southgreenland #Tasermiut #Nikon #NikonZ7 #z7
Last night we discovered this stunning location near Flaming cliffs in Mongolia. We called it "mini monument valley" of Gobi. This week we didn't have much clouds, and the core of milky way was at it's maximum elevation - surely we took advantage of that shooting half a night in the Gobi.
