Photographer's Note

This is my last post for the next 10 days, I'm leaving tomorrow to visit my son and his family in Miami, USA.

The picture was taken during my last trip to Polo last January, we were able to reach the lake and we found that most of the original edge of the lake was still flooded due to Noel storm last September. We found this cosy place with some cows resting and decided to try to get a shot with the lake in the background.

Lake Enriquillo is one of only a few saltwater lakes in the world inhabited by crocodiles. Lake Enriquillo is located in a rift valley that extends 79 miles (127 km) from Port-au-Prince Bay in Haiti in the west to near Neiba Bay in the Dominican Republic in the east.
Lake Enriquillo covers an area of 102 square miles (265 km) and is the lowest point in the Caribbean falling 144 feet (44 m) below sea level.
Lake Enriquillo has no outlet. The lake's water level varies because of a combination of storm-driven precipitation events and the region's high evaporation rate.
The lake contains 3 islands: Isla Barbarita, Islita and Isla Cabritos. The last one is the largest of all and contains a National Park famous for the crocodiles and flamingos. (From Wikipedia)
