Photographer's Note

Mavrovo is a region in the northwest of the Republic of Macedonia. It is home to Mavrovo National Park and a winter sports center. Some of the villages and smaller hamlets include: Mavrovo, Nikiforovo, Leunovo, and Mavrovi Anovi. This micro region is named Mavrovo because most of the people live in the village of Mavrovo and the more famous families were also from Mavrovo.
The exquisite location,(Bistra mountain and the Mavrovo Artificial lake) helped this region to grow into a big tourist center throughout the whole year. Mavrovo is the most popular ski center in Macedonia.
The Mavrovo lake lies at an altitude of 1220m. and its foundation began in 1953. It is 12 kilometers long and 3 kilometers wide and covers an area of 13.3 square kilometers. The coast is 24 kilometers long. The deepest measured spot of the lake is 48 meters deep. There is a lot of fish such as: trout, minnows etc... Lots of fishermen come to fish at Mavrovo lake during the weekend.

It was snowing lightly while this shoot was taken, I think the small snowflakes improve the photo's atmosphere.
