This is the last kilometer on the way up to the edge of the Crimea’s biggest plateau Karabi Yayla (Qarabiy Yayla in Crimean Tatar language). The place where the road from the seaside village of Privetnoe (Üsküt, about 10 km from there) goes up to the plateau is called Bolshie Vorota (Great Gates, Balaban-Qanu). In the picture you can see the right "post" of the gate. Height of this place above sea level is about 950 m, the average height of the plateau being around 1000 m. The highest summit of Karabi Yayla is Tay-Koba, 1262 m.
GPS coordinates: 44.85750 Lat, 34.60650 Long, 950 m

Dobar dan iz Cuprije gde neprekidno od juce pada kisa i duva jak vetar.
Dobra kompozicija i dobre boje.
Lepa fotografija i put koji vodi nikuda.
Lepo vreme, pozdrav Paja.

Hello Serhey ,
Nice perspective on this beautiful mountain landscape , with the track that provides a good depth to the picture .

The scenery is dramatic with the hard rocks emerging from the smoother surface of the mountain. Good use of the path to lead the eye into the scene.

You propose to us a quite pretty mountainous landscape here. Beautiful composition of the image with this way which invites us to the walk. I like much the good luminosity and the clearness of the image. A pleasant area, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships of Versailles and a very good end-of-day,

The gravel road makes a fine lead-in to this mountainous landscape!
Interesting too see how wind and weather has made the rocks break up, and how vegetation is trying to settle in the hostile environment...
Well framed, good details!

That's a beautiful, peaceful and pleasant mountaineous landscape!
The picture has excellent qualities: sharpness, exposure, dof and natural colors! The pov was very well chosen and the composition is superb: the path was nicely placed on the left leading our eyes into the scene and leaving us watching the beauties around, the valley on the right and the rocky peaks right in front of us!
TFS - congratulations!

Effective image with green hills, sharp outcrops and road leading into the distance.
josepmarin (57463) 2009-10-14 11:36
The framing is well-select, you have caught a good perspective in this path that leads our eyes towards the mountains, in an well-illuminated image and with a nice contrast of the colors in the landscape.
The simplicity of the composition makes her more attractive at sight.

Bonsoir, cher Sergiy,
Il est des moments où la nature nous offre un spectacle grandiose, c'est le cas ici.
Encore fallait-il cadrer d'une aussi belle façon pour lui offrir toute la beauté qu'elle mérite.

O ponto de tomada aqui é o maior destaque. Toda a fotografia está muito boa mas o POV sobressai. Muito boa.

Your title resounded in my memory banks so I got lost in your posted map yesterday and didn't get this picture commented. You are really increasing my knowledge of an area about which my ignorance is vast.
The dirt road connecting the seaport village to this massive landmark provides a great entry to the steep hillside and sharply defined rock formation. The shades of green add a feeling of harmony to the compo.

Splendid mountain landscape, also excellent perspective through the good choice of your angle.
Very lovely picture, pleasant for look at.
Sharpness and clarity are very nice. TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

I am very glad you decided to show us some pictures with Ukrainian nature. It is a really beautiful country as it seems. Really good composition, natural colors.
I really enjoy it and I am looking forward for more...

Hello Serge! Amazing landscape, wonderful natural light and bright, ideal colours, spectacular view. Perfect exposure. Good luck!

Hi Sergiy, It is good to see such a place as this on TE. It is a famous place with a lot of history around there. Ideal clarity and pure colours, TFS. Murray.

Wann wird es endlich wieder Sommer, ein Sommer wie er früher einmal war....
Wenn ich dein Foto sehe habe ich diese Gedanken.
Dein Foto und Information ist perfekt!

Another lovely bicycling shot in an area that I wouldn't think is hugely frequented. Niec composition with the path leading the eye in to the frame.
regards and thanks, Iain

Lovely composition that makes me want to be there trekking on the path in this beautiful wild spot.
I love the barren slopes scattered with vegetation, but it looks as though one will enjoy a bit of shade in the wood, before one reaches this desolate summit.
One of your many lovely rides for us to enjoy in pictures !
