Lake Sevan.

This lake lies about 1900 meters above sea level. It is used for irrigation and the production of hydro-electric power. This resulted in that the level went down 20 meters and the lake lost 40% of its volume and it was clear something had to be done. They built two tunnels diverting rivers into the lake and the level started to go up. But still the church and monastery that used to be on an island is now on a peninsula. Again great location, but by now I was fed up with more churches so I took pictures from below.

Then I turned my back to the church and looked at the lake and found that at least to be just as beautiful.
