[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Longos means a lake which is located below sea level. Karacabey Longos is unique, in Turkiye as a lake located below sea level, about -1 meter.

Karacabey Longos is 93 km far from Bursa city center, 32 km from Karacabey subprovince, very nearly Bayramdere Village.

I went to there a few days ago and I'm going to share some photos from there with you. This is the first one.

There are lots of waterlilies on the lake and they make the panaroma great. There were lots of trees in the water and I felt myself like in Amazon region, during going by boat. :)

You see here a general view. I'll drop here upon times some details from trees, waterlilies, frogs and butterflies which I saw there. I prefer there were some clouds on the sky but unfortunately there was none.

Hello Fevzi !
What a splendid landscape ! Lake, forest and blue sky are combined here in such a beautiful manner, making it a real pleasure for the eye. I also like reflection on the water, the waterlillies, the summer feeling, the peace and quiet of this landscape. Very well done !

Selamlar Fevzi Bey
Çok güzel derinlik fotoğrafı çektiğiniz konum oldukça iyi ellerine sağlık

Hi Fevzi,
What a beautiful lake. The many flowers and the different shades of green together with the clear blue sky give this photo such a wonderful fresh feel. But also the view into the distance is wonderful. The mountains add so much more to the entire photo.

Selam Fevzi Bey;

Ağaçların yansıması ve nilüferler çok hoş kompozisyon oluşturmuş. Elinize sağlık


Hallo Fevzi
Picture postcard perfect. The scenery and the reflections are breathtakingly beautiful. I can just imagine sitting there now, wow. A dream place to be and to appreciate. Great exposure with strong contrasts managed well, great detail and beautiful colours. Excellent photography. Thanks for this contribution with hundreds of water lilies. Best Regards.
