The Light Brigade formed at the far end in the valley and charged from left to right through the area that now has trees and past the modern white building and then off the right side of this photo. The white building on the ridge is the museum for the WW II Russian assault against defending Germans - also where Lord Raglan stood.

We are standing well behind the line of Russian artillery, which was along the tree line in the center of the photo (there were no trees at that time). Feodokine hill is the tan ridge on the right and Sapun gor is the dark ridge on the far horizon.

From the same location as photo number 11 here we turn and look to the right to see where the Light Brigade ended its charge just beyond the Russian artillery line which was down where the dark tree line shows in this photo. Part of the Brigade passed on to far center toward the Tcherniya river. The dark ridge line in the distance is Mackenzie heights, named after a Scot admiral who commanded in the Russian Black Sea Fleet.
