    The clouds of Lake Sevan

    Favorite thing: As Lake Sevan is around 1900m above sea level, the atmospheric effects for those of us who live pretty close to sea level are striking and unusual. I particularly like the way the clouds appear to roll down the mountain slopes into the lake. Four of these pictures are taken from the Sevanavank Peninsula and the fifth is an early morning shot of the north-east shore of the lake from a plane from Tbilisi.

    Favorite thing: Lake Sevan is possibly Armenia's favourite resort - it's a huge mountain lake which takes up 5% of the country's area and it's about 2000 metres above sea level - and with turquoise waters.

    Maxim Gorky once described ut as: "a piece of the sky that had descended to the earth among the mountains". The southern and eastern shores are white and sandy, and many beaches are uncrowded, but beware, the water isn't warm. The northern and western shores have several hotels.

    Fondest memory: The tranquillity of the lake and the silence... and the many sights - among all the church complex of Sevanvank and the cemetery of Noraduz.
