Spectacular, incredible scenery, mostly winter, in the Caucasus Mountains in Russia. As I look at the dwellings built on these mountainsides I can’t help but marvel at the tenacity that must give these people a strong endurance, a spirit of “never give up.” Reblogged from https://alk3r.wordpress.com
Wow. This is stunning!
