Empire of the Alps

August 4th, 2015

Klöntalersee is a natural lake in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. Since 1908, it has been used as a reservoir for electricity production. The dam's construction substantially increased the lake's volume.

This is certainly one of my favorite lakes in Switzerland!

Adobe Photoshop CS, Nik Color Efex.

Nikon D800, Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED.

Photo Settings: 18mm, f/6, 1/160 second, ISO 50.

I love every wallpaper you post, every one is just perfect. You have a gift for photography for sure, but you also have a gift for how our photographs translate to beautiful desktop wallpapers. Please keep sharing your work with us!

Stunning location and fantastic capture, the light is incredible. This has gone straight to my desktop and with rotation disabled for the time being :-)

I could be wrong, but I think it may have been better done as a sensitively-tonemapped HDR composite. The dynamic range of the scene was clearly massive and I think it would have been nice to have seen more detail in the foreground, and perhaps less blown highlights.

I am not a photographer. I found out about about this site in 2008, and love your work. This is one of your absolute best. It made my eyes happy. Thanks.
