The Floating Houses of Lake Bokodi.

Lake Bokodi, in the village of Bokod, about 80 kilometers west of Budapest, Hungary, is an artificial lake created in 1961 by the Oroszlány Thermal Power Company by flooding a low-lying meadow next to the plant.
The power plant draws cold water from the lake to operate its boilers, and warm water is returned back to the lake.
This continues recycling of the water causes the lake to never freeze even in the chilly winter air.
Over the years, the lake became a popular spot for fishing and angling, and a number of small wooden cottage on stilts were erected by the locals, with wooden boardwalks leading to them.
As Lake Bokodi’s fame spread through the internet, tourists and photographers started thronging to this remote village.

In Budapest’s heart the Danube river is rarely seen in this frozen state.

It occurred 5 years ago last time, this is why it’s a special moment.

It was worth being out in the -20 C degrees to capture its beauty.

‘Fairy Tale Lake.’

Capture
“This little lake is a part of my life,” writes Your Shot member Gabor Dvornik, who lives half a mile from its location on a natural reserve in Sződliget, Hungary.
“I shoot here nearly every month, sometimes every week.
It has a very special air in every season, but to have a nice, misty day is rare, as wind is always present due to the nearby Duna River.
”Seeing the fog during a last glance outside the night before, Dvornik slept only three hours to make it to the lake for a “dream” shoot. “It was utterly ghostly and very moody out there,” he writes.
“I felt like I was in a fantasy tale, in an enchanted land.
I was so euphoric that I made around 500 captures and walked around the lake two to three times.”
