This photo of the Mount Elbrus was taken from the road Kislovodsk (Stavropol Kray) – Dzhilisu Valley (Zolskiy District, Kabardino-Balkaria). About 80% of the 60-kilometer distance were passed. The distance from my point of view to the top of Elbrus was 18.5 km, if measured along straight line.
In the middle-ground you see the valley of the Artikchal River.

what a spectacular mountain! A wonderful composition, the contrast between the white mountain and the green hills is very appealing. The white flowers in perfect sharpness complete the gorgeous scene adding a great depth to the image... great shot!

This place looks simply amazing! Like it a lot. The white top and flowers captured in the fg make it so unique and beautiful. Well done, TFS.

Great mountainscape with a nice flower foreground that stands out beautifully against the green of the mountains. I like your low vantage point looking upward at the snow covered peak that makes it even more majesic. Fine contrast with the perfect blue sky. I like the natural colours and the simplicity of this well composed shot.

great the view of the Mt. Elbrus with the colour hues of green to end on the snowy top of it.
The foreground flowers complete the beauty of the scenery with the contrast of the colours and the light management to make the image to looks like as a postcard.
Royaldevon (42699) 2012-09-25 13:43
The white flowers, which resemble cow parsley, make an interesting f/g and create a symbolic link with the white topped mountains, in the distance, and establish this strong sense of depth.
Fine dof and excellent light management.
My warm regards,

Superb prospect of great beauty, great POV captured with these flowers in the foreground, these beautiful green slopes of rugged terrain, and the background image of the majestic Mount Elbrus is totally fantastic snowy.
Great management of light and sharpness in this splendid work.

a very lovely deep and sweeping view offered with great clarity and light management. It's very pleasing for the glance to travel along the green valley and slopes towards the green and white mountains and to linger on exquisitely captured textures and details. The light, the colours and the atmosphere are delightful and invigorating. The contrasts have been managed with subtlety and effectiveness as well. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

marvelous view of this famous mountain whose images aren't so usual. I liked the intense contrast between the snow, the sky and the pastures around. nice use of the flowers in the foreground. very beautiful job.
daddo (27786) 2012-11-11 14:29
Zdravo Sergiy.A fine POV of this spectacular panorama. I like hoe the white flowers in the foreground echo the snow capped mnt.The place looks almost untouched by human hand although I assume that grazing is extensive. As usual, lovely natural palette. Pozdrav iz Australije. Klaudio.
npecanhuk (77861) 2012-11-11 15:36
Wow! I had never seen this view in my whole life... it's wonderful, specially for the presence of the Elbrus!
TFS - congrats,
maloutim (9639) 2012-11-29 23:55
This is just a dream panorama, with an excellent composition : The beautiful hemlocks in the foreground opening the eye onto the valley, the mountain slopes and the magnificent snow-capped peak. What a breath-taking view !
However, let's not forget that hemlocks are the most treacherous plants : Beautiful, but deadly poisonous !
Thanks for sharing and have a good weekend.
