There were several sheep and stud farms on our way up along the Kishliksu Stream to a mountain pass between the valleys of Cherek Besengiyskiy and Chegem rivers. This farm was the last one before the pass. We expected to get some information about the road, but we found nobody there. The farmers with the sheep were away on the pastures. Only these horses were grazing near the farm.
In the picture you can see a spur of the Rocky Ridge at the right, the pass, which we had to mount, at the left, and our road above the farm.

This is another spectacular bucolic scene from the North Caucuses. The low lying clouds make the photo very special, and the horses add both life and color. The vertical format is ideal here.
On another note, is it your daughter who was in Virginia, during the summer? I'm afraid I lost the email.

The Argentinians would love this photograph - lots of beautiful, healthy horses in a wonderful natural environment. Superb use of the low clouds which half cover the high bluff.
regards and thanks, Iain

a superb scene with teh horses to graze on the grass under the roots of the big stone-rock over it.The existence of the fog and the vivid colours on the foreground make the scene so effective.Well done.
Have a nice week,Danos

Very nice shot of these horses with the BG of the mountain range. The clouds set a good contrast to the fresh green of the grass with the flowers. Vivid color hues and fine sharpness. Well done. Thanks for your critique of my night shot from Kuala Kedah

Excellent highcountry image for so many eye catching details - foreground flowers, horses & stable, rock strewn hillside leading up to the dramatic monolith, shrouded in wispy clouds.
Very well done, cheers,

Meetings very sympathetic nerves during this excursion with bicycle… Beautiful and luminous photograph on this superb mountainous region. I like these low clouds which create a particular atmosphere to the landscape. The estival colors are very pleasant. Pretty and refreshing glance, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,

very nice wild nature. Good vertical format and composition. Unusual place, well presentation. I like it.
Have a nice day.

The summit is the clouds creates a near the sky feeling!
The wild flowers make a fine foreground, leading up to the horses that seem to be grazing...
This is a fine rural scene, where the nature tells the story of a significant altitude!

A superb composition in a wonderful landscape, I love the POV chosen on the farm and these horses in the foreground, a wonderful rocky summit shrouded in clouds, the effect is stunning.
As always the ideal color especially in the range of greens, very good too light, nice day that shines in the picture.
All the best in these next few days.
