Photographer's Note

Bafa Lake is located within the borders of (Soke District of) Aydın and Mugla Provinces in Turkey’s Aegean Region.

Bafa Lake was an ancient gulf which used to be a part of Aegean Sea. Herakliea, a Carian port, takes place within the borders of the Lake, at the south west foot of Besparmak-(Latmos)Mountains. As result of geomorphologic development of Great Menderes Delta the region turned to be a lake.
The settlement in the area goes back to 2000 B.C.
In 1994, in order to protect the historical and natural values of the area it had been taken under the status of Natural Park.
