Not on the Silk Road:
I had to place this picture for my TE yarn about travelling all of the Silk Road from my Swiss home to China. Not that the trade caravans passed here through today's Croatia and the Plitvička Jezera Nacionalni park (they preferred a sea route instead), but I did so on my way to Ohrid (Republic of Macedonia), where I joined the Silk Road again.
The water is full of Cyprinid fish, quite a surprise for a lake with such clear water. The turquoise color of the water may come from the river that percolates through Karst before filling the many lakes in the Canyon.
The picture needed no boost in PS, I only straightened, sharpened it and reduced its size. Enjoy !
