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.

Green and peaceful landscape, which invites to be explored. At the same time I get the feeling that it must be very warm over there. in the plane there is no shadow e.g. trees, as the forest only begins near to the mountain range. Vibrant color hues and high sharpness. Well done

it is a very well thought and really pretty composition. The plants in the foreground look pretty nice and the landscape is very relaxing. Although unfortunately the light could be a bit better. It is not your fault though. The sky became a bit white and the hills are behind a fog.
The place is very picturesque.

Dobar dan, kod nas se vratila zima, hladno je i to dobro.
Prava fotografija i boje da nas malo ugreju, dobar prednji plan i postignuta dubina snimka.
Imajte lep dan, Paja.

what an incredible natural scenery. I like to see the vastness of the field that leads us to the beautiful mountains in the background. Clever idea to include the plant. It really enhances the depth. I also find the colors and light quite natural. Very well done!

Here you can almost hear the sounds of all insects buzzing around in the summer heat! A very pleasant picture now when winter reigns!

More snow but this morning on Versailles much of fog then this beautiful estival luminosity dehumidifies the atmosphere. Beautiful composition of the image on this pleasant countryside, the floral whole on the right brings an appreciable depth. Pretty glance, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good day,

J'aime la beauté de ce paysage avec cette nature presque sauvage parsemée de fleurs. Beau travail !

A perfect framing under the rule of the thirds, which organizes very well the natural elements in the composition.
I like so green and deep landscape, with the mountains in background and the flowers and the plants in the meadow in foreground.
Is a simple summer image, really beautiful.
A great work.

Beautiful summer landscape, far and wide no bike path - you can not have everything!
Very good comment, I enjoy racing with the wheel
