Tim Cope at the foot of the Altai Mountains in Western Mongolia in 2004. "At the core of my dream was to immerse myself in the sheer wildness and freedom of the Eurasian steppe – a land so vast, and fenceless that not even thoughts or feelings can be hemmed in. Here, at around 3000 metres feet in the Altai Mountains of Western Mongolia with my trusty horse, Rusty, I felt as if that dream was beginning to crystalise."
