After the walk in the jungle (see previous up-loads) I did not expect to find such a tranquil place. There was a lot of wildlife around but not a crocodile in sight. I saw their footprints and smelly doodahs. It was a bit unnerving walking along the shores of the lake taking photos knowing there were somewhere.

With some young American people I met that morning on the jeep taking us to the beginning of the trail leading to the lake, we hired two small plastic boats and went on the lake to visit some islands. I hoped no crocodile would appear. They must have been at the other end of the lake

The photos were taken from the boat and hopefully give you an idea of this beautiful place.

Many thanks for yesterdayís comments. On the amazing golden dragonfly. Iím pleased I chose the right version to post as V1.

Hoping youíll enjoy this lake and various versions.

Have a nice evening,

A super set of beautiful and tranquil scenes, you'd never suspect that there'd be danger beneath the surface of the water! 10 is most effective, have you applied the canvas effect on photofiltre here?
