[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Armenia has lost most of its forests in the second part of the 20th century. Now the ratio of the green lands is around 8% and this is the signal of a catastrophe coming in next 15 - 20 years.

The country has much to offer by the way and you see it in the remaining green parts largely in the north, like the one seen in this shot. It could be a real paradise.

Many organizations work for the reforestation in many areas in the country but there does not seem to be a genuine level of awarness in the government. There is much to do, as the country has to have around 30% of forest area if it does not want to become a desert.

Merhaba Sayat.
İlginç bir panaroma. Doğuştan karadenizli, sonradan olma Uludağlı biri olarak bana hiç yabancı gelmedi. Paylaşım için teşekkürler. Ancak merak etmedim de değil, ne işin var oralarda :).

Your note adds a lot of meaning to the photo. Nice documentation of nature at its present state... Is this a genuine forest that hosts wildlife though? I see houses, too.
Saturated colors and the blue sky make the scenery visually appealing.

Merhaba Sayat,
Harika bir manzara,
Bakış açısı,renkler ve kadraj çok güzel,

Hello Sayat
Wonderful shot of this Armenian nature
scene,Perfect composition and colors,
Great POV ,Welldone.
Check the exposure also :-)


excellent taking! I like the colors and the composition, greetings.

Hi Sayat,
Certainly a paradise, a pity deforestation, a big problem all around the world. I like the intense green forest and clouds "devouring" far mountains.

Dear Sayat!
At first I would like to thank you for sowing here a part of "little known world" :)
Armenia is that place which I always wanted to visit and to see.
Your note is not optimistic, but I really hope that this amazing world will not dissapear.
Best regards from Poland,

Hello Sayat,
This looks like a very beautiful and lush forest and I understand your concern. Here in Sweden we're also fighting to preserve our original forests, new plantations will never be the same! I think the felling of forests around the world also changes the climatic conditions. Thanks for the beautiful view!
Regards, Ulla

Merhaba Sayat,
ağaçlar, gökyüzü ve bulutlar.. okadar güzel fotoğraflamışsınız ki, oradaki evlerde yaşamak isteği uyandırıyor.
Ellerinize sağlık, selamlar.

Hi Sayat,
Thanks for writing your critique on one of my recent pictures.
I notice that this part of Armenia is quite rich in vegetation. Hopefully the country realizes the need for green cover and restores the balance.
I like this pleasant summer view with clouds floating around in the blue sky above this verdant valley.
