Photographer's Note

The Jordan River created Hula Lake and the swamps around it. When israeli settlers arrived in the area it was full of malaria and the waters were drained and the place became a plantation. Nowadays a part of the lake was recreated and migratory birds stop here. Those mountains you see ahead are part of Syria, under israeli control.
........................

O Rio Jordão criou o Lago Hulé e seus pântanos. Quando os colonos israelenses chegaram à região havia grandes focos de malária e eles drenaram as águas todas e criaram plantações no local. Atualmente uma parte do lago foi recriada e virou ponto de parada para aves migratórias. Ao fundo vemos montanhas que pertencem à Síria, mas são controladas por Israel.
