Photographer's Note

Taken thirty years ago on a Winter's morning. The air and water were so still that I could hear fishermen talking far away on the Albanian side of the lake.
This one is for my friend Branko who sees beauty in people, regardless of colour or creed.

The image was scanned from an old B&W film.

Lake Ohrid (Macedonian: Охридско Езеро, Ohridsko Ezero; Albanian: Liqeni i Ohrit) straddles the mountainous border between the southwestern Republic of Macedonia and eastern Albania. It is one of Europe's deepest and oldest lakes, preserving a unique aquatic ecosystem with more than 200 endemic species that is of worldwide importance.[1] The importance of the lake was further emphasized when it was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1979. However, human activity on the lake shores and in its catchment area is resulting in the ecosystem coming under stress.
