16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A bear mountain

This is one of the most popular places in Crimea to take photos of; however, it is often covered with a cloud or stays in a shadow. I was lucky to have such clear weather to capture the mountain and the white rocks in the sea. There are many legends assosiated with this place and one of them says that this is a bear who is drinking the water from the sea to stop his beloved one.
