Mount Kazbek is a dormant stratovolcano and one of the major mountains of the Caucasus located on the border of Georgia's Kazbegi District and Russia's Republic of North Ossetia-Alania.

It is the third-highest peak in Georgia (after Mount Shkhara and Janga) and the seventh-highest summit in the Caucasus Mountains. Kazbek is also the second-highest volcanic summit in the Caucasus, after Mount Elbrus. The summit lies directly to the west of the town of Stepantsminda and is the most prominent geographic feature of the area. Mount Kazbek is the highest peak of Eastern Georgia. The name in Georgian, Mkinvartsveri, translates to "Glacier Peak" or "Freezing Cold Peak"

Hello Piotr,
This is a very original view of Mount Kazbek.
A fantastic panorama with lots to look at.
Great composition in different horizontal layers.
The thick fog layer between the two parts of the village we see is awesome while the snowy peak rises majestically above everything.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Piotr,
Welcome back again from Georgia. I had to see the large version to realize I am looking at a valley filled with a thick fog and not a lake. The fog is just one of several fascinating elements of this view. Another one is of course the white peak rising above the brown hills. Also in the large version I discover the church on the hill towards the left. It's a stunning photo containing so much and it is brilliantly well composed and well taken.
Kind regards,

Hello Piotr ,
Fantastic capture ! It seems to be two different pictures , the village in the mist in the FG , and the sunny moutains dominated by the majestuous snowy volcano . I like also the clouds dancing in the sky around the summits .

Hello Piotr,
Wow, what a view, the volcano is so much higher than the other buildings and also the contrast between the brown peaks and the snow-capped one is very nice. The fog in the foreground and the clouds in the background also add some kind of mysterious mood.

Hello Piotr
An extraordinary beautiful landscape with the snowy mountain in the centre of the scene. The foggy layer between the village in front and the mountains behind gives a fascinating depth in the composition.
Excellent work. Groet Rob

Oi, Piotr!

Interessante como a parte que está abaixo da neblina não recebe luz e a que está acima recebe uma luz incrível. A neblina foi um bom detalhe. Bom enquadramento também.

HI piotr,

The composition is well divided, the sky, the mountains and the town. The point of view is showing the details of the mountains. The layer of fog or clouds is giving a special to the scene. Have a nice day.


Hi Piotr,
Great POV, beautiful landscape, good effect with fog and the snowy peak in the BG, tfs.

Marvelous how the con-shaped snow-covered mountain rising above the fog-covered valley, Piotr.
A moment taken masterfully, bravo.

Very beautiful moment with the fog line at the base of the mountains. Spectacular scene, well taken.


Ciao Piotr, beautiful landscape with fantastic mountains, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Piotr,
Grandiose mountain scenery captured under a pleasant ambient light. The low lying clouds bring an air of mystery to the scene.

Hi Piotr
A breath taking vista with awesome layers of contrasting colours. The eye-grabbing snow peak effectively grabs attentions for the right reasons. The clarity is competently coped with good hint of fg interest too, while the cloud formations lends the extra boost. Great capture, Congrats.
Best regards

Hello Piotr,

The solitary snow capped peak stands head and shoulders above the other mountains. Although there appears to be another high peak at left almost totally obscured by the clouds. Good sharpness & the fog in the valley adds mood. Tfs!

Dobro vece.
Interesantan pogled i trenutak, dobar tekst ...

Lepa priroda i trenutak sa maglom.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.

amazing image. I liked the view with the giant volcano em evidence dealing with its clouds while we have dry hills and a layer of fog in FG. perfect. TFS this beauty.



Hi Piotr,
nice mountain and landscape view here, with a interesting fog in the city. Good light and colors too. Great job, my friend.

Bonjour, cher Piotr,
Quel bonheur de pouvoir contempler un tel spectacle avec cette écharpe de brume qui vient se fixer au pied des montagnes.
Une note édifiante, une composition de toute beauté.

Hi Piotr
Vous avez capturer une scène magnifique
la brume couvrant le paysage, laissant une vue magnifique sur les montagnes, très belle réalisation
belle journée

Hello Piotr.
Wonderful panorama, with such mountains of conical shapes, Mount Kazbek stands out with its height and whiteness by the snow, on the other peaks, with that touch of great summit, the mist that covers the sea is an original complement.
Very nice colorful, with good quality and optimal lighting, gives great quality to the image.
Well done. I like very much
You have a good day.
Very best regards

Hello Piotr,
This is a great view of the mountain over the fog covered sea.

Czesc Piotr,
kto rano wstaje temu Pan Bog daje.
Tylko zgaduje ze to moglo byc wczesnym porankiem....
Znakomite swiatlo i niesamowity kontrast z ta pograzana we mgle zacieniona czescia obrazu.
Ta wlasnie wielowarstwowosc kompozycji robi ogromne wrazenie, tylesie tutaj dzieje.
Doskonaly punkt widzenia ale rowniez swiatlo ci dopisalo.
Przepiekny widok!!

Witaj Piotrze,
Georgia to gorzysty kraj i twoje zdjecia z tamtego regionu sa wspaniale. Kazbek musi byc bardzo wysoka gora poniewaz jest ciagle pokryta sniegiem. Ladne zdjecie karajobrazowe ze swietna jakoscia.
