From the words of the photographer Konstantin Titov :
We flew in a helicopter over the MKAD (Moscow Automobile Ring Road). We flew over the entire ring at an altitude of 150 meters and a duration of about 50 minutes. Because of the heat the engine had to work at maximum capacity. From that height you can see how the the number of buildings and the density of development affects the greenery. In the afternoon, many people swim and sunbathe on the beach. The beaches themselves look like sea resorts.
