Photographer's Note

This is a photo of the Khongorin Els sand dunes in Mongolia. A bunch of us climbed to the top to watch the sunset. The sunset was taking quite a while, so we decided to try the Mongolian National sport of wrestling while we were waiting.

Wrestling is unbelievably popular in Mongolia. Almost every male in the country is quite a good wrestler. My guide on this trip weighed about 25 kgs less than me and took me down no problem. The rules are a little different than in most countries: the match is over as soon as any body part other than hands or feet touch the ground.

This is a photo of the decisive moment just before my friend got thrown down the dune. I kept the horizon in the middle of the photo, as I was using my wide angle lens.
