Most mornings, people get to stare at a blank ceiling… but for photographer Oleg Grigoryev, the views are looking pretty spectacular. His series, Morning Views from the Tent, was created on repeated trips into the high regions of Tajikistan’s Fann Mountains, documenting the stunning scenes that greeted him each day as he looked out of his tent door. If these photos don’t make you want to ditch your cubicle, pack up your bags and leave the rat race of life, nothing will.

He lived in and explored the outer Mongolian regions for years and documented it in several fascinating photography series.
Here is a peek into the unique and disappearing lives of the Reindeer People in Mongolia.
