K'ala, Svaneti, Georgia

This time I've included a couple of views of the village of K'ala itself, so you can see where I was shooting. It's about 10 km below Ushguli on the way to Mestia.

K'ala, Svaneti, Georgia

Not getting tired of endless vistas of the same stretch of frozen river, I hope, dear viewer? Sorry, I'm kinda stuck on it, but not for much longer. Bear with me.

K'ala, Svaneti, Georgia

These pictures would all look totally different in other lights. Earlier sunlight wouldn't have the same gold colour about it, not having had to travel as fat to the atmosphere to reach the scene and the eye. This late afternoon light (and that of the morning) also has the advantage of lengthening shadows, giving landscapes more fully realised 3d definition
