This picture of the Malka River valley was taken from the road from Kislovodsk to Elbrus National Park. The road is seen at the top-left corner of the picture. It runs exactly along the watershed between the Malka (the Caspian Sea basin) and the Kuban (the Sea of Azov basin). Administratively the territory in the picture belongs to Zolsky District of Kabardino-Balkar Republic.

The flanks of this canyon formed by the Malka river are overall beautifully green, even partially wooded.
Your chosen POV on a hilltop gives us a very far reaching view over lots of other hilltops.
The inclusion of the winding road at the upper left corner helps to get a good sense of scale.
Best regards, Paul

What incredibly rugged country! And I note the foto was shot in July, the middle of summer, and there is still much green, so I infer that there is sufficient rainfall.
A fabulous vista, Sergiy -- thanks for sharing!

This great panoramic pride with these great depressions and all that greenery that covers everything, fantastic DOF with the mountainous horizon in the distance.
Beautiful color range of these natural tones.
Good management of light and good sharpness.
My wishes for you and also for your family, a Happy and Prosperous New Year 2014.
All the best.
P/D. I regret not including the Russian language of my note, but the only thing that guided me in it, was to include the languages of the people, who I'm usually commenting on this last time, and feeling it really any Russian friend of TE I was commenting on pictures of me lately.
