Photographer's Note

Lake Sevan is a big mountain lake, situated at approx 2000 meters above sea level and covers 5% of Armenia's surface area. Maxim Gorky once said about the waters that they were like a piece of the sky that had descended to the earth among the mountains. On the monastery peninsula, there is the monastery of Sevanavank, consisting of two rather rough churches. One of them is seen in the picture. In the background, there are the Gueghamian Mountains which contain one of the oldest and biggest petroglyph collection in the Caucassus area. Clear blue sky, beautfiul water, mountains, typical church and green grass are in summary, Armenia. In this version, which is closer to the original one, I reduced saturation and noise.
