This was taken a couple hundred feet above the plains surrounding Khoton Nuur in far western Mongolia.
On a hike/wander with some fellow study abroad students, I split from the my companions. I came across a little pond (behind me while I took this) and just sat next to it and found myself mediating on differences in people and how they can interact with the same thing, in this case mountains, very differently. I was heavily influenced by Zen and the Art of Motorcycle maintenance and it all just came together in this moment. That I got a beautiful photo out of it was a bonus.
