This lake landscape photograph is a minimalist impression of a foggy day at a Swiss lake. A longer exposure time made the water and sky appear smooth. This, to give the photograph a more zen and tranquil look and feel. Hence, the title “Tranquillity” of this soothing lake landscape. The piers come into the photo from the side and lead the eye towards the foggy horizon.
The two piers in this photograph lie on the east shore of a Swiss lake called Lac de Neuchâtel, near the municipality of Estavayer-le-Lac. Lac de Neuchâtel is one of the largest lakes in Switzerland. The mountain silhouette in the back is of the Swiss Jura mountain range.
Interested in seeing photographs with a different perspective on this scene? Have a look at the photos titled Abandoned or Broken. Both feature the same piers and are soothing lake landscape as well.
