The elevated vantage point has enabled the high sodium and salt content of this lake to be seen more readily. It is not so apparent walking along the shoreline. Taken from the Castle atop the hill on the southern approach to Adilcevaz looking south towards Tatvan. There are 5 metallic structures like cranes in the water. I have no idea what they are there for.

The wideness of the lake is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the road and of the coatsline. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

Nice to hear from you! It's even nicer to see such a pleasant photo of Lake Van, one that I have not seen for myself. Great composition, colors and DOF.

Joli point de vue sur le lac et ses eaux aux couleurs variées. La route de bord de mer n'améliore pas vraiment le paysage mais il doit être plaisant d'y circuler en admirant la beauté des lieux.

A pleasant panorama view about these Lake, we see indeed different layers in the water.
Also the beach part is wonderful to look at.
A nice perspective with depth and super wide image.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

So this is where you've escaped to? No wonder we haven't seen you around, this place is gorgeous. What stunning turquoise water and beautiful curved lines. Your high POV is right on the money, and (needless to say) the sharpness is superb. Well done

Quelle beau point de vue sur cette route qui longe la plage. J'aime beaucoup la couleur de l'eau qui entre bien en contraste avec le noir de la route. Un bel ensemble très profond.

A fine picture of the coastline and the separation of land and water. Beautiful shades of blue, a marvellous view.

nicely chosen POV as it offers good panorama view over the lake and its banks. The road on the shore looks like it can lead through some pretty spots too and it adds some interest to the composition. The colors are lovely and I especially like the different shades of turquoise on the water.
Thanks for sharing
All the best

your last three, recently taken photos indicate that you might be quite familiar with airline promotions... compliments for three wonderful photos. i am mesmerized by the chemical color on the shore, so i choose this one.

Hi Chris, My dream is to see the Lake VAn and Nemrut Dag, but I suppose it will never be fulfilled. Fantastic view from above, but with this highway near the shore it doesn't look wild. It is so big, looks like a see. The lake Sevan in Armenia means Black Van.

Nature created a marvelous two blue colors of the lake water's, Chris, and your chosen high POV is just a stunning sight.
Following the waterfroint highway the viewer is led towatrds the sheer cliff "falling" to the lake on far side of the scenery. Blure horizon gave a sense of endless seascape.
Impressive shot and pleasent to look at.

Great pov! The view is fabulous and I really like the light and the tonalities of the water. I guess I haven't seen many photos of this lake so far!
