The sun sets on the Gulf of Mexico, just off the coast of Galveston, Texas.

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. John Muir

Virginia - Dawn, in a large nature preserve......

The main attraction of Lake Seliger is nature. .This is one of the most beautiful lakes in Russia, located on the territory of the Tver and Novgorod regions, roughly in the middle between Moscow and St. Petersburg (360 km from Moscow and 480 km from St. Petersburg). The largest city on Seliger is Ostashkov (22 thousand people). Other large cities are Peno, Selizharovo.

Lake Seliger is located on the Valdai Upland at an altitude of 205 meters above sea level. The coastline is very quaintly rugged and, for the most part, covered with coniferous and mixed forest. The area is 260 square meters. km (according to the Seliger area in the twenty largest lakes of Russia), the average depth is 5-6 meters, the maximum is 24 meters. There are a lot of islands on the lake, mostly small ones, but there are also two large ones - Khachin and Gorodomlya. Lake Seliger has a maximum size of 70 km from north to south and 40 km from east to west. According to the origin of Seliger glacial lake, formed 70-11 thousand years ago. Not far from here at the village. Volgoverkhovie. is the source of the Volga River. There are many islands on Seliger, the largest of them are Khachin and Gorodomlya.

This place is in the city of Krasnogorsk, Moscow region. Russia.

The settlement lies on the spurs of the Smolensk-Moscow Upland; the relief gradually decreases from the north-west of the city to the south and southeast, lying in the floodplain of the Moscow river. Ravine erosion processes are common. Absolute elevation marks are in the region of 190-220 meters. The presence of large reserves of groundwater belonging to the Moscow artesian basin and confined to rocks of the Paleozoic age, to deposits of the Jurassic and Cretaceous systems, made it possible to organize reliable water supply to the city from artesian sources.

Krasnogorsk is located within the forest park zone of Moscow. The city is quite densely surrounded by forests, mostly mixed, with individual sections of conifers. The species composition of forest stands is predominantly represented by spruce, birch, aspen. Treeless territories are heavily urbanized.

The environmental situation in the city is deteriorating. In the vicinity of the city, among the most important environmental aspects, a relatively high loss of forests stands out (and the anthropological factor here is only in third place among the reasons: the main ones are adverse weather conditions, as well as pests and diseases). There is a certain pollution of groundwater (there are excess MPC for manganese, lead, cadmium and ammonia). The radiation pollution of the atmosphere in Krasnogorsk is at the level of background values ​​(9 - 17 μR / h).

At this point there is a ski slope about 300 meters long, the slope with a lift and a rental point is called "Chernevskaya SKI Resort". “The decision to equip the hill was made in the fall of 2017. This measure allowed not only to recreate the open ski slope in Krasnogorsk, but also preserved the natural landscape, as well as the appearance of a favorite place of the townspeople. Previously, the territory was planned for capital development, ”specified on the website of the administration of Krasnogorsk.

I had to bend a bit down, but maybe it was worth it. Poor waist ...

Beautiful trees show magic of nature.

Virginia - Rain and light at sunrise, in a nature preserve...

I can definitely recommend shooting the nature in the moonlight! It is an almost surreal experience. This one was taken in the Glaskogen nature reservation.


Thank you for viewing!
