The Kackar Mountains, part of the Pontic Alps, is the glaciated, granite mountain range which hugs the south coast of the Black Sea, extending from the Caucasus towards Istanbul.The crown of the range is the Altiparmak (six fingered) and Kackar mountains, and Mount Kackar, at 3932m, is the fifth highest peak in Turkey. Best points to arrive are on the south side of the range, which is exempt from damp rolling mists which clothe the northern slopes most afternoons. The locals say that if the north face has 5 clear days in a month, it's a surprise; if the south has 5 rainy days, it's amazing.

I do like the easthetic feeling you created. It looks almost like an abstract shot. Technically, you succeeded capturing a wonderful light in that valley. And together with the mountain in the background and the clouds, it created a magical perspective effect. It looks like we are going toward a new dimension :) Really great Recep !

A very nice perspective with great colours. The clouds around the mountain on the back make it stand out very well. I like the shadows on the green too.
Very well done !

Wow....this belongs on a post card! Excellend contrast between the green hills and blue sky. The hills also seem to be framing the mountain in the distance.

Great alpine shot! I like the perfect curve of the valley and the vivid colours. This is beautiful scenary, and your shot really takes dull advantage. Well done!

Truly a wonderful view down the valley. The colours are well saturated and the sunlight on the left does nothing but enhance the photo.

very nice picture, I like this curve which nicely divides your picture between sky and greenery.
Good DoF and vivid colors

I love the colors and the U shaped valley making a tunnel for us to look through directly at the peak in the distance. Fantastic choice of DOF with very mystical atmosphere.

A well composed photo, rendered with good clarity, colour, and contrast. I very much like the bowl effect and the symmetry of the rising slopes on each side. The clouds swirling over the mountain add dynamism and ambience. Well framed and cropped as well for maximum impact. Very well captured, Recep.

Merhaba Recep- muhtesem bir foto, vadinin U sekli çok iyi çikmis, harika bir doga.
Fantastic mountain scenery, the U-shape of the valley is striking, and reinforced by the shadow of the cloud. and I really like the rugged peak poking through the clods.
