[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Doesn't it remind you of an eye!? It surely does to me. There are many lakes that bear such name but this one is the most "eyeish" I've ever seen.

Its name is Jablan Jezero and it is high in the Durmitor Mountains, some 2000 meters asl. The slope you see behind the lake is a basis of Cervena Greda, some 400 meters high rock with a very spectacular view. The road to that place encircles the lake.

I came down for some rest and water - believe me this was the coldest water you could imagine. Just another beautiful place in the Balkans...

This morning I go to the seaside to do some fieldwork, so see you on Saturday :-)

Amazing place!

It really looks like and eye of te mountain. A stunning place. I like it very much. The water doent look as cold wiht this dark green colour. I usually think in blue or white colours for cold water.
