At this place, near a sheep-fold, there was our night-stop. In the evening we could see where to go further, but now, at 7 a. m. on the Ukrainian time or 8 a. m. on the local Moscow time, we could see only that we had to go up-hill without viewing the mountain saddle we were heading to. Fortunately, in an hour time the fog cleared away and we set off.
Usually, during a group bike travel the tourists come to a stop at around an hour before the sunset, and start their daily lap at two or tree hours after the sunrise. A single tourist can go in for traveling from sunrise to sundown. That is why I prefer solo trips to group ones.

Beautiful and well composed photo. Nice light balance between the FG and BG.
One thing I wonder - how come there is no critiques... The picture definitely deserves it!

Great photo, the composition is great, and the colors too. The POV places me right in top of the mountain, like if I was there....Congrats!!!
I wonder how could have ended up the photo is you would have use a little more exposition time, to give the fog a movement effect?

Very beautiful with the fog in the valleys between the different mountain layers. Also nice is the green colour appearing through that fog.
The composition is great too.
Best regards, Paul

The mountaineous landscape is very beautiful, but you truly chose a very good moment to take this picture, while those low clouds were ther! Thus, the visual results are so attractive!
I really enjoyed that!
Excellent photo job!
TFS - congrats!

After looking at your wonderful architectural shots, this is another side to your photographic personality which is also excellent: a beautifully framed and composed natural landscape. Excellent management of the light to produce a nice crisp foreground and a background fading in to the mist.
Lovely shot, Iain

Good evening Sergiy,
I am satisfied to see an image of the nature of Russia. The landscape is superb, the clouds add to the mystery. The photograph of big size details this spectacle agreeably. Excellent realization. Cheer.
siolaw (38080) 2010-09-15 23:50
Fog gave the atmosphere to this picture... specially with hill like that it looks real nice (maybe a bit cold for me (i call cold everything below 25°!)
Convenient choice of the vertical format to add depth to the scene.
Graal (95982) 2010-09-16 0:16
nice glance on the misty valley. Fine POV You had. I like it. Well photowork.
Have a nice day.

wonderful, mystical mountains congratulations!
Kielia (23013) 2010-09-16 10:18
an excellent composition, this new POV on this already well known landscape works excellently and is giving us a great impression of the wonderful nature. I like the mist that creates a fascinating atmosphere. My compliments!

Good morning Sergiy,
extraordinary shot with the fog to have been spread between the Mts of the area.I like the colour and the light management as the sensation of mysterious that created.Well done.
Have a nice day,Danos
Royaldevon (27545) 2010-09-17 7:28
This is a most amazing photograph!
I don't think I have ever seen one quite like this before! The mist appears to be rolling down the valley, following the lowest land, as a stream would do!
I like how you have used the f/g triangle of grassland to anchor the shot and to give a sense of depth.
Have a good w/e,
Waylim (25172) 2010-09-17 10:26
this clouds and fog really makes this image very special. I know if it's too much it not good for photo, you can't really see anything. But here you have just enough to make it special but not cover up all the hills. Lovely nature shot, so serene and peaceful. I like it very much.
pablominto (53744) 2010-09-18 23:31
An interesting display of the morning fog hovering in the valley!
I'm amazed to see this is taken in the middle of summer as the foggy mornings are more a sign of upcoming autumn hehehe...
The elevated point of view works well, resulting in this fine documentary!
shevchenko (19051) 2010-09-19 21:15
Impressive view from the high sea level, nice misty environmrnt and dense clumps, the mountains are have nice shape too, good vertical format to frame it all, distinct photo in low light condition, good shoot.

jafadabret (56501) 2010-09-25 6:38
Beaucoup auraient renoncé à faire une photo par un temps pareil mais toi tu en as fait une très belle. La brume est encore dans les vallées alors que les sommets se trouvent sous les nuages.

Hi,be thankful for the "bad" weather it made this superb photo possible.Truly dramatic it could be on the cover of a Gustav Mahler score.Friendly regards Wolf.
sacimar (25975) 2010-10-21 7:12
this is a beautiful place, I like the fog in the green mountains, good angle to show the impressive landscape, well done,
lakshmip1949 (19110) 2011-09-29 10:09
A fabulous shot this fog covered mountain presented with perfection. I like the natural colors and sharpness. You are very fortunate to go on these solo bike trips where you have time in your hands. Really, a very nice composition.
