Ararat...A Biblican mountain upon which Noah's Ark landed after the flood...
Tombs of some Armenian kings full of treasures are located on Ararat...
Ararat has mystical influance on Armenians and was worshiped and made part of many legends...
These days it is located behind the borderline, in Turkey...
But the picture was taken from the Armenian side...

J'aime beaucoup les tons "softs" de l'arrière plan en bleu et blanc qui créent un excellent contraste avec ce premier plan aux couleurs chaudes.Le plan médian laisse dévoiler de très belles textures.

It's like two pictures in one. Great visual effect, sensational mountainous background. Spendid depth of field!

Beautiful Photo and a very interesting location. I like the banks of clouds in front of the mountain, this photo has great depth.

Really this looks like an incredible scenery, totally unreal as if 2 different places had been superimposed, one of hills in a rather deserted valley and the one somewhere in the Himalayas ! Yet in the Himalayas no even such snowy mountains before 6500m !
I like this visual contrast and the image is of excellent quality
Have a nice WE
Quite happy that we know each other again !

Great sweeping shot of this legendary mountain - a sight that I too hope to see one day, from whichever side of that border. A mountain of so many stories...

the landscape in this picture is stunning. the buildings make you realise the scale of the mountains, as does the cloud on the snowline. fantastic viewpoint. great depth of field.

Hello Jerzy ,
It seems to be two different pictures ! Landscapes in the Bg and in th FG are so different , so contrasted .
A fascinating view .
Thanks for the share .

This view looks amazing, very nice landscape.
Maybe you should try to get more vivid colors and more contrast on the peak.
It looks very good anyway.
Keep up the good work!

Marvellous! What a fotka you have here... Set in stone, the range dissected - the depth is stagering. A scene so natural, split into so many serated and folding layers. It looks like the cloud is just a small sliver in the distance, but the shadows cast on the side of the mountain suggests it stretches for many a mile! What a range, in more ways than one. Quite a classic.
Nice one Jerzy. I like this a lot.
