Yesterday I post a photo of a pomegranate fruit here. It was taken at the Skadar Lake in Montenegro on the October of 2008. Today you can see 3 shots from this place. Take a look also at my WS photos here, here and here. You can see also photo taken by Michal (cedryk) taken in the same place on 2006 here and photo taken by Radek (cicindela) also in 2006 here

Lake Scutari, also called Lake Skadar is a lake on the border of Montenegro with Albania, the largest lake in the Balkan Peninsula. The Montenegrin part of the lake and its surrounding area were declared a national park in 1983. It is one of the largest bird reserves in Europe, having 270 bird species, among which are some of the last pelicans in Europe, and thus popular with birders. The lake also contains habitats of seagulls and herons and is abundant in fish, especially in carp, bleak and eel.

Hello Krzysztof,
Amazing landscape, most beautiful views on this long lake. It looks like it would be crossed by a river. Looking at your pictures I can easily imagine the fauna, especially the birds living there. Seems to be still a very peaceful area. Great shot, with a interesting point of view.
Thanks and kind regards
