Hossein Fatemi

West Azerbaijan, Iran

A pleasure boat stranded on dry ground near an abandoned hotel complex on what was once the shore of Lake Urmia, a salt lake in West Azerbaijan Province. Studies have revealed that the lake's size has fluctuated over time largely due to the impact of periods of drought and flooding. Currently the lake is rapidly shrinking due to drought but also a result of dams built on some of the rivers that feed the lake. This means that hotels such as this one, once on the lake's shore, are now far from the water and therefore of little attraction to tourists.
