Photographer's Note

Over the Sera Stream to the west of Trabzon and 8 kms inside from the coast nearby the Demirtaş Village is Lake Sera. It is a dam lake which was formed as a result of a landslide of a slope on February 20, 1950.

The lake is located in Sera subdistrict, nearly 4-5 km inside from Akçaabat road. It spreads over a 4 km long area along the valley behind the Dam, and its width ranges from 150 m to 200 m. Water level of the lake has been being decreased slowly due to the erosion of this soil dam which formed it.
