Re: Very nice!

This picture has been taken from the West slope of Kazbek (something around 4200-4500 m). The distant white mountains are Bezengi massif. Elbrus (5648) is poorly visible in the haze - it is the most distant white spot on the photo.



Thank you for the good evaluation!

Diego,

the peaks are Djimarai (4780 m) to the left and Shauk-hokh (4636 m) to the right. The peak in the middle below the other two is Maili-Khok (4600m). In the far distance you see Dych-Tau, Koshtan and Elbrus. See also: http://www.summitpost.org/image/410356/170909/summit-view.html

Cheers!

great picture

What can be more beautiful than Caucasus... It seems Lermontov and Pushkin are still there. And all the mess is certainly there today. Great picture and page!

Re: great picture

Thanks a lot for your remark!

Caucasus is full of history, it's true. And the mess is a world's trouble, it is not only in the Caucasus...
