Photographer's Note

About the place:

Apolyont, the fishing village from which the lake took its name, is now known as Gölyazi. Shaded by ancient plane trees it is attractively situated about 5km/3mi off the main road on the northeast shore, on a peninsula linked to the mainland by a causeway. In antiquity the lake was called Lacus Appolonia after Appolonia, a town famous for its temple cult and ruins (including remains of a theater, stadium and temple of Apollo from the fifth century B.C.) which today lie partly buried beneath the village.

There was very probably a Greek town here, resettled in Hellenistic times. By the 14th century it was described as virtually uninhabited and falling into disrepair, with four ramparts and surrounded by water. In the 19th century it was said to be a prosperous small town with a mainly Greek population and a castle.

About the photo:

Two children who lives near the lake. They dreaming to have a fishermans boat... Like father like son.

Thanks for your interests.
