The Malka River’s origins are on the northern slopes of Mount Elbrus. From its glaciers, small streams flow down to the Kizilkol, Birdzhalisu, Sultantarisu, Karanaysu and other rivers, which flow together at the Kayaeshik Pass (from were this picture was taken) to make the Malka River seen in the picture. At this site, hard rocks come to the surface, so the river runway is stepped with four waterfalls of heights from 20 to 40 m. One of them (28 m) is seen in the picture.

A really marvellous view! Your inclusion of these yellow flowers in the foreground add the necessary refence and depth to the picture. The darker slope below is also well placed in the composition.

Kia ora Sergiy,
A nice peaceful landscape of the wide open spaces. The cluster of yellow flowers by the foreground rock immediately draw the eye and lead into the spectacular valley beyond. Cheers, Neil

A wonderful mountain landscape with lovely nice yellow flowers in foreground.
I see a few trees an almost no forests, perhaps to cold in winter!
Nice depth and perspective.
Excellent composition, good presentation and soft colors.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

такое умиротворение, когда смотришь на этот ландшафт и эти краски лета. Дество вспоминаю сразу. Но судя по последним новостям из Нальчика, не все так спокойно там, как на картине. Отличное фото.
Я ответил на почту.

Excellent landscape photo. I am really impressed by this excellent landscape photo. I love the composition and the perspective with the yellow flowers in FG and deep green valley with winding roads is amazing. The light is excellent. The vertical framing is very well chosen, in a slight higher-angle view that works very well graphically, and gives a nice perspective to the valley. The light has a beautiful effect on the elements, and the colors are magnificent. Well done!!!

The wonderful panorama of this high valley and the green slopes that rise into the top of the mountain, with traces of snow even in summer, impressive as the river has been digging its bed with high walls.
A perfect touch those yellow flowers in the foreground.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Well done. I love it.
Have a nice day.

a superb composition in a well chosen vertical frame. The sense of depth is amazing and the excellent clatity enables us to make a virtual journey all over the vast and beautiful landscape. Lighting and colours are wonderful and the bright yellow flowers offer a delightful contrasting colour that enriches the image. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
