[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is Crno Jezero in Durmitor National Park. The photo was taken during our stay in beautiful Montenegro.
Black Lake (Montenegrin: Crno jezero, literally 'Black Lake') is a lake in Žabljak municipality, in northern Montenegro.
It is a glacial lake, located on the Mount Durmitor, on an altitude of 1,416 m. It is 3 km away from the town of Žabljak.
Crno lake's surface lies at the foot of Međed peak, and has an area of 0,515 square km. The lake consists of two smaller lakes, Veliko jezero and Malo jezero, literally Large lake and Small lake. The lakes are connected with a narrow strait, which dries up during the summer, thus creating two separate waterbodies.
Veliko jezero / Great Lake has an area of 0,338 square km, maximum depth of 24,5 m, maximum length of 855 m and maximum width of 615 m.
Malo jezero / Small Lake has an area of 0,177 square km, maximum depth of 49,1 m, maximum length of 605 m and maximum width around 400 m.
The maximum length of the entire Black Lake is 1,155 m. Malo jezero / Small Lake actually has greater volume, being of greater depth.
Black Lake is filled by numerous mountain streams, the best known being Mlin stream. Other streams have no name, as they appear periodically, when snow from Durmitor mountain is melting.
Thanks for visiting.

說真得 你的風景照真是沒有話說
照的都很有內涵 我想你的美術修養一定不錯
才會這樣的構圖 這些都是要經常去看畫展 古董 藝術展才能培養

右側的綠色真是美 倒影更美更清晰 左側也綠意也美麗
在左右綠陰的航道 就像一夫當關 萬夫莫敵 非常險要 也很美麗

山的對稱也很美 水裡的倒影比實際更唯美 一片安靜祥和 洗滌人的心靈

Hi Maciej,

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm lake, the wood with green trees and the rock mountain with snow. Here seems to the place with beautiful/peaceful nature. And, the reflection projected to the lake draws out an additional good atmosphere in this image.

Hi Maciej,

THe reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the mountains. The gray sky is giving a good contrast to the colours. Have a nice day.
