Lac Léman, or Lake Geneva in English, is a large but beautiful lake on the north side of the Alps. The lake lies in the western part of Switzerland and is one of the largest lakes in Europe. Lac Léman offers stunning views and beautiful sunsets as this photograph illustrates. The fact that the lake has the Alps on its southside makes it quite unique.
This lake landscape, titled Colourful Tranquillity, features a wooden pier in the lake at the beach of Préverenges during sunset. A longer exposure time smoothened the water of the lake and the clouds. As a result, the photograph seems more soothing.
Préverenges is a small town in the Swiss canton of Vaud by the way. Préverenges beach is a beautiful sandy beach. Make sure to visit if you are into photography. You will find quite a few excellent foreground subjects there. The wooden pier in the photograph is also featured in a photo titled Shadows & Light. That one is in black & white though and uses quite a different perspective.
