    Sheep's migration to the Dagestan mountains I am a veterinarian who has been passionate about photography since childhood. The village where this frame is made is my homeland. Sheep is distilled each year in spring from the plain to the mountains and back in the fall. In the breeding of this breed of sheep in 1930 - 1950, my grandfather participated in whose honor I was named - Omar Pakalov. I dreamed that my pictures will be published in NatGeo and maybe this is the very moment Thank you )

    From Your Shot photographer Rose Ungvari: "Truly a breathtaking view Pakalov! The mountain terrain looks rugged, yet the herd of sheep seem to travel across it effortlessly! The lighting you captured created beautiful shadows at play and the dust forming in the air to the right side adds a magical tone! Excellent image!"
