At this place, near the mountain pass Kayaeshik (2532 m above sea level), numerous streams flowing down from the glaciers on the snowy slopes of the Mount Elbrus, flow together forming the Malka River. The Kizilkol is the biggest of these streams. Along it, we had to ascend on the Palnbashi Saddle (3691 m).
In the picture, you can see the canyon of Malka in the foreground, a spur of the Mount Shaukam (2879,7 m) in the background and the so-called “Valley of Castles” in the middle.

Lepo mesto sa kanjonom i planinom, kako li izgleda danas kada je stigla zima sa snegom.
Dobar ugao i ostrina snimka, lepe boje i fotografija.
Lepo je, dobar rad i secanje.
Prijatan dan sa lepim vremenom, imajte lep vikend.
Nice place with canyon and mountain, as it seems now that winter has arrived with snow.
A good corner sharpness and image, beautiful colors and images.
It is nice, good performance and memory.
Nice day with beautiful weather, keep a nice weekend.
All the best.

What a steep valley and so green. Very beautiful and charming scenery, far away as it looks from the civilization, what certainly is a good thing. Your contrasts and color hues are superb. Well done.

Still a very beautiful light on this impressive mountainous landscape which creates interesting reliefs on this splendid canyon. Good contrast with the background. Vertiginous, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and an excellent WE,

Très joli paysage et excellentes perspective avec les montagnes derrière dans la fumée atmosphérique.. Les rochers en avant-plan sont de toute beauté mais il ne faut pas trop s'approcher comme tu as fait pour prendre la photo. Les tons de vert sont superbes et beau contraste avec les rochers.
Tous mes compliments et bon dimanche,

beautiful mountain view.
I like the play of the light with shade here. Some fog makes an interesting contrast between the closer and further regions here.
Very well done,

An impressive landscape with sharp and dangerous looking drops!
Vertical framing works well. I like the soft colours, fading in the background...
