Photographer's Note

From South American rainforest I jump into the High Caucasus.
Piotr has uploaded recently his 100th picture from Georgia. I was in Georgia twice, I travelled from one end to the other but I posted only 40 pictures.

Here is the view of Shkhara, much less popular than Kazbegi.
Elevation 5,193 m,
Prominence 1,357 m,
Isolation 6 km.
Shkhara (Georgian: შხარა, Russian: Шхара) is the highest point in the nation of Georgia. Located in the Svaneti region along the Georgia–Russia border, Shkhara lies 88 kilometres (55 mi) north of the city of Kutaisi, Georgia's second-largest city. The summit lies in the central part of the Greater Caucasus Mountain Range, to the south-east of Mount Elbrus, Europe's highest mountain. Shkhara is the third-highest peak in the Caucasus, just behind Dykh-Tau.
It is a large, steep peak in a heavily glaciated region, and presents serious challenges to mountaineers.
The peak was first climbed in 1888.(Wikipedia)

On different maps the elevation given is different, I do not know why.
Workshops will follow.
