This picture was taken in the Stepantsminda’s region at the beginning of the Vardisubani Village, where the Georgian Military Road went down giving me a breathing-space before the very steep uprise to the Krestoviy (Cross) Saddle (2379 m above sea level). At the top-left corner of the picture you can see the watch-tower of the Sioni Monastery.

spettacolare paesaggio di montagna dove si respira un'atmosfera di grande quiete.
Ottima la gestione della luce e belli i colori naturali.
Well done and TFS!

Very beautiful green mountain scenery with some spectacular sharp peaks that remind me of pictures of the Dolomites.
It's a great setting for a monastery.
From on top of that watchtower probably the whole surrounding area can be overlooked easily.
Best regards, Paul

such a peacefull landscape...the colors and light which you mastered perfectly are a nostalgic rememberance of what we had for the past months....but the fall has a lot to offer to photograph too.

thanks for sharing,
macjake (39227) 2011-10-02 14:54
wow, what a view you had here!
there is absolutely nothing i would want to change about this photo.
positioning the road so low in the frame makes the hills seem that much taller.
great shot you have here.

Boa noite Sergiy

Breathtaking view! A very nice contribution as I have observed that Georgia is less represented here in the community. Nice capture on the greens, love the depth of field. This scenery reminds me of Hawaii, with lush greens and rocky caldera-like mountains. Wonderful capture!
Thanks for sharing!

Очень познавательно. Часто встречал упоминание этой дороги, спасибо за такую яркую иллюстрацию.
Резкость и красочность - отличные. Много же повидали событий эти места.
pablominto (53744) 2011-10-03 22:58
The watchtower is a sure eye-catcher in this scene!
Interesting rugged landscape characterized by rocky mountains surrounded by intense green...
A well framed view, good details and a fine feeling of depth!
nikkitta (5852) 2011-10-04 18:33
Spectacular landscape and great POV
Great colors, been green the dominant one
Like a lot the looming tower of the monastery, can we wait for photos of it?
Must have a great view
Greetings and congrats
mkamionka (24505) 2011-10-06 3:49
beautiful landscape, it seems so unusual. I like the panorama of the mountains. Including the motif of the road was also a great idea. The watch tower adds even more interest and an extra strange geometric shape.
Excellent photo, TFS
shevchenko (18243) 2011-10-07 1:10

What a great picture, spectacular scenery with these rugged peaks, to which the green slopes covered with a blanket of beautiful, the image of the tower in a surprisingly high.
Superb light control with a good balance of light and shadow, beautiful colors in an image very much alive.
photoray (4926) 2011-10-10 17:16
A mystical and appealing vision, similar in mind to the Lord of the Rings. I am drawn to the watch tower, dominating the high ground.

a very fascinating place and a wonderful impression. The colors are very pleasant but it is the excellent perspective that makes this image very attractive. My compliments!
ptiza (727) 2011-11-08 6:54
Это фото мне ОЧЕНЬ нравится - одна из удачнейших ваших работ и почти классический кавказский пейзаж. Отлично - захвачены дорога, скала, башня и кусочек неба - и композиция закончена. И - ничего лишнего. Поздравляю!
Всего наилучшего! Успехов,
sacimar (25957) 2011-11-21 3:10
this is an interesting image, the tower is really eye catching, I like the landscape with the green mountains, well seen,
jmdias (45780) 2011-12-01 15:46
amazing view, the light is special. the shapes of the mountains and the curious towers look like a not real view, like a land of legends. very special mood. TFS.
kordinator (13411) 2011-12-05 5:38
The beautiful nature along the road.
Indeed your works exude positivity.
