The best views of Elbrus

Photos and text by Denis Frantsuzov

Stratovolcano Elbrus - the highest mountain peak in Russia and Europe, included in the list of the highest peaks of parts of the world "Seven Peaks" We go on a journey to find the best views of Elbrus.

1. We went in the direction of Kislovodsk. From the highway, from time to time, views of unreal expanses of the Caucasus opened up.

2. Parking place!

3. In the meantime, something incredible was happening on the sky.

03

4. Elbrus continued to drag clouds. But we know that after bad weather the most interesting things usually begin!

5. To understand the scale: a tiny point on the road - someone's car. And who can argue that this is not the most beautiful road of the Caucasus?

05

6. In whatever direction you look - the mountains are beautiful everywhere!

7. The serpentines of the road to Gil-Su are seen to the right and in the distance. This is how these lands are seen by huge birds.

8. As, for example, won that eagle that hovered in the sky next to our camp.

10. Sunset was not long in coming.

11. The sun inexorably moved behind the sharp peaks of the mountains, painting everything around with a soft light.Somewhere in the distance from the upper layer of clouds rain poured through the low-hanging clouds to the ground.

In the mountains it gets dark quickly ...

12. In whatever direction you look, you can see sharp peaks everywhere. The main Caucasian ridge in front of us at a glance!

13. And here we smoothly approached the climax of this evening. Flashed, and how! Around dusk, the sun hid behind the horizon, but the last of its rays, reflected from the atmosphere, briefly illuminated low clouds.

13

14. All this light presentation lasted less than 10 minutes, and then abruptly stopped. Somewhere far away over the mountains it still rains, but we have great autumn weather.

14

15. And then the night came. And although the Mountain was still hiding behind clouds, the unreal Milky Way was slowly floating overhead. The cities with their illumination were far away, so that the stars seemed very clear and bright in the blue-black sky.

15

16. Towards morning, the sky began to clarify, and Elbrus, surrounded by thousands of stars, seemed to us in all its glory.

17. The night was moonless, but the light was still enough for the Mountain to appear in the photographs.

Here are how many we fly in space for some 20 minutes:

18.Every morning, even the darkest night, always follows. Closer to 7 o'clock the main Caucasian ridge began to be lit up with a warm light.

18

19. Every minute it became lighter around, the outlines of the peaks "played on the contrast" with an orange sky.

20. A cloud began to appear over the western summit - a harbinger of the coming bad weather.

21. The long-awaited dawn!

22. While Elbrus is just beginning to be illuminated by the morning sun, it seems dark and "cold."

23. By the way, the camp site is some five hundred meters from the asphalt and is available absolutely for any transport!
