Here is my second photosession from a 400 km trip by car (August 2011). The start point is Buzovna (30 km north-east of Baku) and the final point is Hoshbulag, a village in Dashkesan region close to the border with Armenia. Enjoy! :cheers:

My second photosession was east-west route which lacks natural beauty (forests, lakes, rivers etc.) but I still do hope you liked it 8-) On my next trips to Azerbaijan I will try to make new virtual tours to the north and to the south of the country which I found even more interesting in sense of landscapes :p Thanks for attention! ;)
