Photographer's Note

Lake Attersee shoreline in Austria. Parts of the musical 'Sound of Music' were filmed on the opposite shore of this picturesque lake, situated in western Austria. I composed this in thirds. It looks a little like a tricolor flag! The water is a deep turquoise colour on account of glacial rock flour washed down from the mountains and dissolved in the water. The cottages are holiday homes for wealthy Austrians and Germans. Taken from a moving tour boat (10 Euro one way Attersee town to the south shore of the lake).
