Photographer's Note

Belaya (this Russian word means “white”) is a river in the Republic of Adygeya and Krasnodar Krai of Russia. It is a tributary of the Kuban River, which it joins in the Krasnodar Reservoir). The river is 273 km long, with a drainage basin of 5,990 km˛. It has its sources at the main watershed of the Caucasus Mountains. In its upper reaches it is a typical mountain river, and flows through deep canyons, while in its lower parts it is a slow flowing lowland river. The towns of Maykop and Belorechensk lies at the Belaya River. (From Wikipedia).

The shot was made at the place, where the Rufabgo River flows into the Belaya. The Adygeyan word Rufabgo means “mad” or “obstinate”, because there are 15 waterfalls there. You can see one of them in the picture.
