Here we have a typical Tibetan Yak Farm in Northern China in this agriculture-themed travel picture. The Yak grazes in what looks like a barren field at the base of a mountain in Tibet.
Yak Farm in Northern China
During our photography tour of Northern China and Tibet, we found the main (only) protein we could get at any restaurant was Yak. The landscape in this photograph is typical of a Tibetan Yak Farm. Although not a focus of my tour, seeing this agricultural farm or ranch added some environmental photos of Yak farming in Tibet creates a better story. The gesture of this image that I was after was to emphasize the barren and dry terrain. I limited my color pallet and upped the clarity in Lightroom to bring out the texture of the land.
Yak are characterized by their shoulder hump, large horns, a horse-like tail, and a full dense coat. These long-haired mammals are called hairy forehead yak in Tibet.
What do they taste like, you ask?
Most of the Yak animals we had during our meals were in stew and soups. The meat was like small tough cuts of beef. Great for the trip's experience, but nothing I will be seeking at our local restaurants back home in Canada.
