Mt. Ushba (4710 m), which is situated after the Shkhelda valley, is one of the most prestige and well known group of Caucasus all over the world, which is even this time covered with oriole of grandeur and a mystery. There is some hidden reason in its singular and rather disturbing shape, in the grandiosity of its faces, and in its dramatical climbing history, which have formed a myth of the mountain that is proud to have the name of "Witches' Sabbath".

I don't usually like the artificial look of these night photos, but this is really impressive.

The solarisation of the shadows gives an ethereal look to it.

Great pic,all we saw of Ushba on our trip up Elbrus was the separate peaks of the mountain showing through the cloud.
