Sunrise in Gatun Lake

Posted by Alfredo J. Martiz J. (Panama City, Panama) on 18 April 2010 in Landscape & Rural.

Yesterday my brother, a friend and I went to Gatun Lake for fishing. It was my first time ever doing that activity, I have to say that fishing combined with photography is relaxing, although the idea of disturbing the peace of the swimming dudes is not nice...

Gatun Lake (Sp. Lago Gatún) is a large artificial lake situated in the Republic of Panama; it forms a major part of the Panama Canal, carrying ships for 33 km (20 miles) of their transit across the Isthmus of Panama.

The lake was created between 1907 and 1913 by the building of the Gatun Dam across the Chagres River. At the time it was created, Gatun Lake was the largest man-made lake in the world, and the dam was the largest earth dam.
