Morning at Lake Attersee
Unterach am Attersee
April 4, 2009
"Attersee (also known as the Kammersee or Lake Attersee)
is the largest lake of the Salzkammergut area of Austria.
It extends for about 20 km from north to south
and 4 km from east to west.
Its water comes from the Seeache,
which flows out of another lake, the Mondsee.
The Höllengebirge (literally meaning mountains of hell),
with a height of up to 1,800 m, are located southeast of the lake.
Situated to the southwest of the lake is the Schafberg
(the "Sheep Mountain", 1,782 m)."

The first picture will take
you to an image of a
painting by Gustav Klimt,
who frequently vacationed at the lake.
Oh, so very evocative images.ReplyDelete
I love the second picture.ReplyDelete
It seems to me that you have witnessed the Lake Attersee Monster. In the top picture you can see its bow-wave approaching the buoy from the left; in the second, it has evidently just swum by. Nice capture!ReplyDelete
thank you, it was a beautiful morning by the lake. :-)
thank you! :-)
lucky me I did not attempt a swim! ;-)
Lake Attersee reaches a depth of almost 600 feet at its deepest spots. Enough space for a monster!
There were scuba divers down there too, btw. ;-)
Tranquil, austere,glacially elegant like all your pictures.ReplyDelete
Mountain lakes have a etheral quality to them, wherever they are.ReplyDelete
reminds me of a giant cherry floating in the lakeReplyDelete
These pictures are such a tease. I'm counting down to June.ReplyDelete
Oh what great photos. How lovely to wake up early and take photos at such a peaceful place.ReplyDelete
