This lake landscape in B&W is titled “The End”. The main subject is a line of rock, which acts as a breakwater on the beach of Préverenges. Préverenges is a small town at the shores of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) in the Swiss canton of Vaud. The beach there is an excellent location for landscape photography … and sunbathing. It is one of the few sandy beaches on the shores Lac Léman, and you will find quite a few worthwhile foreground subjects there.

This fine art photograph in black & white was taken using a longer exposure time. This smoothened the water as well as the clouds on the horizon. It is less busy as a result of it. The photo is in black & white, to create a bit of a dark and foreboding mood. Hence the title “The End”. In many ways, this seemed like a fitting title for this moody landscape photograph.
