Lake Iskanderkul is situated on the territory of Aini region of the Republic of Tajikistan.
This lake is situated on the northern flanks of the Gissar ridge, among high mountains, covered with archa trees. Around the lake there are huge mountains 4000-5000 meters of height.
The lake is really beautiful and its water is marked by its exclusive transparency.
According to the history, Alexander the Great of Macedon and his troops were here, and now the lake is named in his honor ("Iskander" in Tajik means - Alexander, "Kul" - lake).

Luca, thank you for showing this beautiful place. Perfect colors and focus. When looking at reflection, one tries to pictuire to himself how the bank looks...

Beautiful photo, Luca. Very elegant and artistic framing to have just a bit of land with the trees reach into the scene from the left, and splendid colorful reflections resulting in a tranquil look, reminiscent of an impressionist painting. Well done.

Serwus Luca !
Stunning, extremaly fresh scenery in interesting compo.
The blurred effect of refelctions is most enhancing.
Good note along this serene view.

Great composition you've made here by choosing a very special point of view. The surface covered by the water plan is only "disturbed" by this little piece of coast. It's like a very little island lost in the greatness of the ocean. The sharpness is very good and permits to render a beautiful effect on the water surface and the colour palette reinforces the "fight" against the deep blue of the water and this little piece of earth. Really beautiful and very well done !
