Photographer's Note

Yakın zamanda pek蔞k sapanca fotoğrafının siteye yklendiğine şahit oluyorum. Gzeldere ile ilgili aldığım ciddi duyumları yalanlarcasına sapanca'ya yklenmiş herkes. Ben de boş durmayayım bir '蔮eme' ile yakaladığım bu enstanteneyi paylaşayım istedim.
Sapanca g闤 herhalde son 10 yıldır ilk kez bu kadar ykselmiştir diye dşnyorum.

It was cold and rainy even stormy so trees at the shore of the lake have sunk into water when i took this photo. It was very intersting moment.

Lake Sapanca, Turkey

Sapanca Lake is located on a tectonic hole, which is situated between Izmit Bay and Adapazari Meadow and runs parallel to Iznik Lake. The forest area near to the coast of Lake Sapancas south slopes has been heavily damaged and has left space for new kinds of small trees like maquis. Nowadays there are no more significant forest areas surrounding Lake Sapanca. Flow volumes of the streams, which feed the Lake are very low and many of them have dried up.

The catchment area of Lake Sapanca - about 251 sq. km [km淫 - is surrounded by mountains in the south and small hills in the north. Water is taken from the Lake for domestic and industrial needs.

Lake Sapanca is one of the few lakes in Turkey, which provides drinking water, but it is exposed to heavy urbanization because of its natural beauty and its proximity to the metropolitan Istanbul. Natural forest lands in catchment areas have been vanishing quickly. There is pollution from highways near the coast and also from waste water from settlement areas around the lake. A negative effect on the trophic level of the lake has been observed.

Until now heavy pollution has not been observed in the lake, but nevertheless dumping of waste water from domestic areas should be prevented and no licenses should be given to factories.

The region around Sapanca has become very important for day trips and weekend vacations with its charming natural beauty.
