This picture was taken at the beginning of the dirt road from the Cherek Besengiyskiy River to the Chegem River Valley over the mountain saddle, which sometimes is called Dumala according to the name of an old Balkarian village, which unfortunately is abandoned now. It is pity, because the climate of this highland is very good. It is considered to be better than that in the capital of Kabardino-Balkariya, Nalchik. There are good pastures there and a lot of farms and corncribs situated along the road. A part of them, as this one, look as if they are unused. But maybe this is because the cattle often pasture freely, without shepherds, during the whole summer period.

Hello Sergiy ,
During our trips , we can meet this kind of place , and decide to leave everything to live there ! But i suppose that the scenery is less idyllic in winter .
The composition is splendid , with the succeeding grounds : yellow flowers , house and rocks , mist , and the high mountains in the BG .

Bom dia Sergiy
Amazing landscape. This yellow line in foreground attracts attention and give a nice effect to the photo.
For sale??? I would like to buy that small house there.

fine capture of this montainious landscape. I like the natural colours and the special atmosphere created by the rising fog. In the background we can admire some impressive mountains. I like it.

una bella scena con un ottimo contrasto cromatico tra cielo e terra divisi dalla nebbia.
Un pò isolata la casa "in vendita" sotto la roccia :) ma ottima per fare dei party con gli amici nei giorni di festa :P

Excellent management of the bright light and very pleasant natural colors. My compliments, also for the nice note!

I would buy this hut if it were a few kilometres from Montpellier. Its environment of rocks and greenery is superb and alleviating. Your photograph is remarkable, the clouds creates a blur which gives of obvious advantage to this hut. Cheer.
Have a good evening

That's really the idea of a house in the middle of a beautiful nowhere. Great colors, fantastic. Congratulations!
Waylim (23312) 2010-11-19 12:11
Wow, I like the clouds that if lifting up in between the the mountain and the foreground green hill. beautiful greenery and the yellow mustard flowers make it so cheerful and some little purple specks of wild flowers make it even nicer. the texture of the rocks is really nice and sharp. Great light too and composition.
saxo042 (33926) 2010-11-19 12:22
This house really melts into the landscape and almost dissappears beside the big rocks. A beautiful view with all these mountains above the mist. I enjoy the satellite view that you have provided; you have to zoom out to see the fantastic topography here. Marvellous!

Nice rocks and this small house.

I really like the atmosphere that the low clouds created in this scenery.
The green in FG give a great impact to the image, the little house is well placed, the composition is perfect, so as the great quality. Congratulations and TFS.

The wild flowers make a pleasant setting for this stone cabin at 2000 m....!
And the rocky summits in the back ensures the alpine feeling...
A fine composition with this beautiful and special place..!

What an extraordinary place! There a so many suprlatives — the lush green, the towering mountains, the solidity of rocks, and, yes, that fog. That fog is as thick and diffuse as the foreground vegetation and rocks are sharp and colorful.
photoray (6672) 2010-11-21 6:15
Good depth of field and interest - foreground of yellow flowers (mustard plants?) middle of rock cottage surrounded in mountainous landscape, and the low lying cloud.
Good job, cheers,
jafadabret (56497) 2010-11-22 23:37
Cette photo est très agréable. J'aime ces alpages avec les fleurs, les rochers et la petite maison. La brume en se levant dévoile le sommet sous le ciel.
Que du bonheur !

I like the graphical contrast created by the fog in BG, that hides a part of the mountains, and such a green grass of the meadow, splashed with small yellow flowers.
The small house and the rocks add more interest to the composition.
Excellent sharpness and beautiful colors, in an image with a great light, and very well executed technically.
adramad (30925) 2010-12-02 8:21
Lovely image while nice, I like the contrast of those big rocks with abundant greenery, breathtaking high mountains through the mist, the wildflowers in the foreground are a nice touch of color.
Good lighting on a sunny day that gives you a beautiful range of color.

Beautiful landscape with the rocks and the small house in the center. I like the mountains with the fog, the green hills and the yellow flowers in the foreground. Nice sharp image with good colors.
