Photographer's Note

I toke this picture in the begining of July, during a tour in the Rodopes mountain. I saw this place for a first time and in my oppinion is the most beautiful place in Bulgaria.
The green colour of the water probably is due to Colloidal sulphur or ferrous salts, according to Daddo
Vacha Dam, located in in South Bulgaria, is supplied with water by Vacha river, one of the main right tributaries of the Maritsa river. The river passes through Krichim Dam and Vacha Dam that secure drinking water for city of Plovdiv and its plains. The Vacha runs through the Rhodopes forming a deep valley where the two dams are located. Vacha river does not flow close to any industrial enterprises, which is the reason for its clear water. The dam is the longest in Bulgaria (30km) and also the deepest. In the widest part of the dam lake there are private floating houses inside, as well as fish-nurseries.
