Bafa Lake in winter...
Image taken from the beach across Ikiz Adalar (Twin Islands). The mountain behind is the Latmos (Besparmak in Turkish) Mountain. You can only reach here by trekking or by local fishing boats.

The lake, abounding with fish, is located in the south of the Meander plain and faces the ancient Mount Latmos (Besparmak Mountains). Originally it was a gulf in the sea blocked up by the alluvium of the Meander River. The old village of Kapikiri, located on the north-eastern shore of the lake, mingles with the ruins of Heracleia by Latmos. The ancient city was a port built by the Ionians at the bottom of the Gulf of Latmos. Lake Bafa is spread over a large area between Didim and Milas.

Hi Selen.
This is a really outstanding image of landscape. Freshness, clearness, delicacy paints and lights are fantastic. Excellent set of close and remote objects, perfect composition and great exposure. BRAVO and TFS,

This is a wonderful photograph pf a beautiful place, Selen. I love the dead tree, its shadow and its reflection. There is great color and good depth of focus and sharpness. It might have been a good idea to not cut off the very top of the tree.

Merhaba Selen ..
Yine harika bir bafa fotoğrafı renkler kompozisyon,açıklamalar ve dogallık çok güzel ellerine sağlık

Hello Selen,
Amazing landcape, amazing lake. Very nice composition, although it would be good to include also the top twigs of the tree.
I wonder how salty that water is!?
Best greetings,
