Location: Maja Rosit (2516 m)      by: Pedrotti Alberto
Area: Albania      Date: 28-08-2013
This view from Maja Rosit / Rosni Vrh encompasses both N.13825 and N.13946. It has been shot few minutes before both of them.
Few hours after the upload of the present work (what a coincidence!), I received a mail from Ahmet Rekovic, of the Plav mountaineering club, in answer to a request for topographical help that I had sent him few days before. Namely, the identification of the summits was very difficult due to the unreliability of the Udeuschle data and the lack of serious cartography.
Now the labels up to Maja Rogamit are set according to the annotated version of of N.13825 which he sent me with incredible kindness.
So, the "cursed mountains" of the Prokletije will finally have reliable names - which, he guarantees, are hard to retrieve even for a local!
28 vertical images, 70 mm (x 1.5), 1/320 sec, f/8.

Good work and for me - although I have never been there - an interesting topic.

Thank you for your interest.
With two trekkers that I met in situ during three August days, and one fan also here, the Prokletije (which is said to be the most impressive mountain group in Europe outside the Alps) confirms its magnetic attraction!

Is there any reason why the snow in the more right part of the picture is so brown coloured? sand or air pollution?
2013/10/30 14:12 , Jens Vischer
I don't think that there is noticeable pollution in this end-of-the-world region.
I guess that what we see is sand, presumably also eroded by the wind from the nearby walls. Namely, close to grassy spots the snow is remarkably cleaner:

Under the rocks,on the other hand, it is always very dirty.
Here you find a closeup of the snowfields below those that you are mentioning:

Here is the larger snowfield that I found, on the other side:
