These are the north-west outskirts of the big village of Alexandrovskoe, the administrative center of the Alexandrovskiy District of Stavropol Kray. The village is famous for plenty of natural stone sculptures scattered on the hills to the west from it. There are “Frog”, “Camel”, “Elephant”, “Turtle” and many others.
The hill in the picture is called as Frog Mount, because the biggest (around 4 m high) rock, Frog is situated there. You can see it at the left end of the rock formation. But from this point of view it does not look like a frog, but more like a monkey. From the opposite side of the hill the Frog Rock looks just like in the painting by Vladimir Bravkov. His picture and mine together give some kind of 3D-image of this main tourist attraction of Alexandrovskoe. The second figure to the right evidently is the Camel; at least, its two humps are visible pretty well.

You must have a lot of imagination to see there frog, camel and other animals. But the place looks interesting. I like the real animals, the goat looks quite cute.

A very pleasant diagonal composition with this goat at the corner and the two horses below the slope. Very good colours and a very peaceful atmosphere.

Для меня , как городского жителя всегда интересно возвращение к истокам. Приятная композиция. Так и представляю жжуние насекомых, чириканье птиц в дополнение к сюжету. Хорошо выведена диагональ с небом. Поздравляю.

The view up is clever. The composition is well chosen, with the bright soft colors and clear background. Perfect sharpness and clarity. Well done.
