This lake landscape photograph illustrates the beauty of Lai da Palpuogna in autumn. Lai da Palpuogna, or Palpuognasee in German, is one of the most beautiful Swiss mountain lakes and it is located at the Albula Pass in the Swiss canton of Graubünden.
Lai da Palpuogna is idyllically situated in a forest and surrounded by beautiful mountain peaks. Mornings at the lake usually start without wind. The surrounding scenery is often beautifully reflected in the lake as a result. There are many beautiful viewpoints along the shores of the lake. All in all, it is a great place for landscape photography, both around sunrise and sunset.
It was just after sunrise when this photograph of Lai da Palpuogna in autumn was taken. The sun just started to shed light on the larch trees and mountains in the back. As a result, the morning light was still soft and balanced. The Swiss alp catching first light in the background is Piz Üertsch by the way.
