Photographer's Note

This picture was taken in the area of Caucasus Mountains, which is called Western Caucasus, at the place where the Kurdzhips River flows out of the narrow part of its valley named as Canyon of Guamka (you can see the end of canyon in the top-middle part of the picture). This particular place is in the wider part of the Kurdzhips River’s valley, in 45 km to the south from the town of Apsheronsk, the administrative centre of a rural area in Krasnodar kray.

From the hamlet of Guamka (several kilometers further to the south) I was not able to ride my bike. The next 8 km along the canyon (up to Mezmay settlement) and plus 16 km up to Lago-Naki plateau I had to dismount from my bicycle and go on foot because of absence or poor conditions of roads on my route.

The plant with yellow flowers at the right is an elecampane.
