Photographer's Note

If this photo was taken in Switzerland, or France then I wouldn't have posted it. But I'm pretty sure this is the first time this little pond/lake has been posted on this site. The reason it is interesting, is this pond is located in the middle of the Haraz Mountains in Yemen. I took a three-day trek through this area, myself and a guide I found in the town Manakhah.

This was on our second day of trekking when he asked me if I liked to swim. I told him yes, and about twenty minutes later, he led me to this fresh-water pond. Yemen is a country in dire need of water, so this little resevoir of water was very interesting and unique. The water was a bit chilly but refreshing. We relaxed here for about thirty minutes laying in the sun by the water. It was the only thing resembling a lake I saw in the three day trek, with mostly dry landscapes with scattered villages.

Hence why I posted it, to show a different scene than one usually shown from Yemen.
