A stranded boat on a disappearing lake

A boat lies stranded as lake Palčje disappeared underneath. Lake Palčje is the largest of 17 intermittent Pivka lakes that come and go in an area of 15 km of air distance. The lake's bed is 1,5 km long, but in 2017, like so many times before, the entire huge lake disappeared overnight.
