When I was riding into Pyatigorsk along the M29 highway from the side of Mineralnye Vody, I soon got to the intersection seen in the picture. The way strait on along the Kalinin Avenue leads to the city’s center and further thru Kislovodsk to the Mt. Elbrus, situated at the strait-line distance of around 95 km from this place. The road to the left runs to the place of Lermontov’s deadly duel on the Mt. Mashuk. The Street of the 295th Rifle Division leads to the right towards the Beshtau Massif. Beshtau means Five Mountains or Pyatigorie in Russian that gave the name "Pyatigorsk" to the city.

Wow! I'd love to visit that mountain some day!
Great catch here! Although it's far in the distance and hazy, it's very interesting to see it together with modern life details!
TFS - congrats,

the Elbrus dominates imposantly over the whole region.I really like the view on it from the distance and the way it emerges from the foggy air.Superb capture from the road.
Have a good day

It seems hard to drive along this street when eyes would inevitably move towards the very beautiful landscape ahead. A marvellous view! And you have included many interesting details in this street capture too.

You chose a very well angle with a street view.
Also the mountains in background care for a nice panoramic view.
Nice summery daily life image.
Light and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
