This colourful sunset features a wooden pier at the beach of Préverenges in the Swiss Canton of Vaud. Préverenges is a small town on the shores of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman). Préverenges Beach is a nicely situated sandy beach with quite a few interesting subjects to include in photographs. So, if you are into photography, make sure to visit when you get the chance. Avoid the summer months, though!

The title of this lake landscape is “At the Beach”. As can be seen, it was a beautiful and peaceful sunset. The sunset lit the scene from the right. Make sure to also check out an alternative version titled Colourful Tranquillity, which was taken using a longer exposure time. The wooden pier in the photograph is also featured in the photo titled Shadows & Light. That one is in black & white though and uses a very different perspective.

This photograph of a colourful sunset at Lac Léman is part of our Sunrise & Sunset landscape photography theme. The theme includes landscape photographs captured both at sunrise and at dusk.
