16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Blue Eyes

Traveling to mongolia was a dream come true. Attending the Golden Eagle Festival was amazingly surreal. I may have been staring at him a bit, but we made eye contact & I gestured at my camera. He ever so slightly nodded, looked directly at me & I took his photo. Amidst all of the excitement of the festival, this was a serene moment for me. His rugged beauty & graciousness sums up my whole experience in Mongolia.
