Panoramas of Mongolia

Posted on 9 Sep 2013 | 7 comments

It’s become a tradition now to show you our favourite panorama photos of a country or region.

As Mongolia is such a beautiful and panoramic country we managed to take lots and lots of panorama photos. Some with Lara or us in it, but also a lot of the stunning landscapes on their own. It was hard to make a selection, but after much debate we are now proud to present to you our favourites.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi Jon & Jude, Following your trips progress closely from NZ and we are amazed at the vastness and beauty of the varying landscapes… and feel a seed has been sown as to what we could do next. When you finish in Europe do you have any firm plans for LARA? as we would be very interested if you wanted to sell her!! If you would like to contact us to discuss
    wadsies@xtra.co.nz or skype may suit you ” wadsies1″
    Good luck – Bruce & Sandy Wadsworth

    • Hi Bruce and Sandy, always great to hear we have planted a seed into somebody’s head 🙂 And yes, there are so many beautiful places in these countries we feel we simply don’t have enough time to see it all! We’ll send you an email hopefully later today or otherwise tomorrow. Thanks for the message and talk soon. Cheers, Jon & Jude

  2. Nice photos

  3. Great panorama pictures!
    Hoe do you make them?

    • Thanks! We have a Sony camera which has this feature built-in. It’s very easy, you just move the camera from left to right or the other way and the camera does its thing. We love it.

  4. Hi Jon and Jude, It was so nice to meet the both of you yesterday. We really enjoyded your company, shame it could not have been a extra day. BUT!!!! You got us out of bed early next day!!!! Hope to see you again one day in this wonderful world. We just arrived in Narijn ready for China/Tibet.
