Back in June I posted something about my attempts to capture that classic ‘reflection shot’ in a lake with no name, situated at 2,900m or 9,514 ft, above Arolla. I was thwarted that day by the lake still being frozen, but I vowed to return later in the year, when the skies were blue, (i.e. yesterday).
My hopes were not high when we awoke to overnight frost and, worse still, during the ascent, there was ice on the path (pic 7), in a stream (pic 10) and on a small pond below the lake (pic 11). Imagine my surprise then, when I arrived to find only one edge was still frozen. 🙂
As you will see (pics 13 and 14) the lake itself is nothing spectacular, but the opportunities it affords the photographer, (not me obviously), are enormous.
