These shots were taken in Kemerovo region, Siberia, the beginning of September, 2015.
The river presented here is called Telbes, it’s approximately 80 kilometers long (about 50 miles). The region is mountainous and overgrown with taiga.
This scenery was photographed on April 22, 2015. It’s the old Russian cemetery above an industrial (in the past) town in the southwestern part of Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. The town is called Kadamjay (Kadamzhay), also known as Pulgon, 30 kilometers south of an ancient Uzbek city called Fergana (Fargona).
This is Aksu river photographed from one of its bridges in Kadamjay town in the south of Kyrgyzstan, one of the Central Asian countries. Another name of the river is Shohimardon-say (in Uzbek).
The mountain rises above the Central Asian town of Kadamzhay and is called Kitovka in Russian. The mountain was dubbed Kitovka by Russian settlers in the second half of the 20th century, when Kyrgyzstan was part of the USSR.
The sun sets on the opposite side of Mt Kitovka.
