Photographer's Note

Lake Scutari, also called Lake Skadar, is a lake on the border of Montenegro with Albania, the largest lake in the Balkan Peninsula. It is named after the city of Shkodra in northern Albania (Albanian: Shkodra or Shkodër, Serbian: Skadar, Italian: Scutari). The origin of the name comes from the Greek Skoutari. Its surface, 6 m (20 ft) above sea level, can vary between 370 km² (142.9 sq mi) and 530 km² (204.6 sq mi), of which 2/3 is in Montenegro. The lake is a cryptodepression, filled by the Moraca River and drained into the Adriatic by the 41 km (25 mi)-long Bojana River, which forms the international border on the lower half of its length.
