Photo by Aaron Huey @argonautphoto | A Tuvan "cowboy" moves his herd outside the city of Kyzyl, in the remote Russian Republic of Tuva, in southern Siberia. This image was taken while I was hitchhiking across the Trans-Siberian Highway, from the Russian Far East to Moscow. I had seen these riders on a ridge above the road and climbed up to check out the scene. When I popped up and over I got a nod—an OK to photograph—just before he reared up. As the horse rose up, I dived to the ground to get it silhouetted against the sky and caught this frame in the first seconds of our encounter.
