Well done, Steve! Like!
Great to see enough water in this lake Steve. Nice picture. Greetings Berend
Nadia & berend it remains to bee seen just how good winter was it was cold very cold for here but in truth not as much rain as we should have got or needed. i bet this will be dry come summer all these "lake's" are really only inches deep at best. a new spot for me to enjoy. steve
Good shot Steve. Have you seen this. Geerten told me about it!!! Best Regards, David
David Had a very short look, nice to find a fellow bush photographer that you can compare with me stuck in the city its not so interesting. i will look some you can bet and will end up as a fav just to see more. steve

Looks like a lot of trees we have here Steve. All killed by salt & we have thousands :-(( LIKE LOZ
A fantastic photo! 1 Lk + 1 my favorites. Bravo, ciao, Michele
Loz & Michele not sure why these trees about the lake died but they go all around the rim of the lake. thank you both for the likes. steve
Hello Steve: I'm not a botanist and I do not know what to say. However I see that the lake is only three miles from the sea. And if the lake is at sea level, then is possible that the lake's water is contaminated by the sea saltwater. Perhaps there is a too high concentration of mineral salts in the water. Perhaps the water is too salty, because after so many years the lake (which seems artificial) has become too salty as a result of high evaporation. Plus: it may be that in that area the sea level is rising, with all the consequences. If you are interested in the topic "water", I will recommend this book very interesting the way in which humanity wasting water resources in all the world: bu Fred Pearce, When the Rivers Run Dry: What happens when our water runs Out? It is not a pessimistic thought. Is a book about the common sense that is no longer used by all the world. Michele
... maybe it's just a natural cycle of forests and trees?!? In any case, I too want to know why these trees are dying around the lake.
