Trübsee or murky lake is a mountain lake halfway up between the mountain resort of Engelberg and mount Titlis. It is situated on a high plateau at an altitude of 1800m and easily reached either by cable car from Engelberg in just a few minutes or a rather steep two hours walk up the side of the mountain. The pleasing azure waters of the lake are surrounded by lovely pastures where cows are grazing. One can find several restaurants around the lake or even hire a rowing boat.

Bonjour Daniel ,
Un magnifique lac de montagne entouré de grasses prairies où les vaches doivent passer un merveilleux été . Des couleurs peut être un peu "spéciales " dues à un HDR ?

If this isn't quintessential Swiss, then I don't know what is!? A pristine lake surrounded by lush green countryside and nestled up against the snow capped mountains is just the epitome of simple elegance and beauty. And if that's not enough, a good herd of cattle slowly grazing the fields or casually lying around soaking up the sun and atmosphere. Are these "laughing cows?" :) The blue/green color combination is always easy on the eyes as well. What a terrific depiction of the landscape...and it even appears as if one of the stars of the show here is giving you a favorable nod in taking her portrait. :) Beautiful! Have a great day ahead. Take good care.

What's so lovely picture! Frankly speaking it reminds me a cover of the Swiss milk chocolate ))) Very nice photo!
Best wishes from Russia!

ces vaches ont de quoi brouter la bonne herbe de ces pâturages, dans un endroit vraiment superbe avec lac et montagnes et néves

that's a wonderful idyllic picture, the different shades of green provide the most relaxing sight for sure. Perfect camouflage for the cows; but for the extra sharpening they would have been hardly discernible:)

ieri purtroppo ho finito le critiche prima di quanto previsto e mi è stato impossibile fare un bel commento alla tua foto, ma oggi rimedio elogiando la tua impeccabile composizione, i colori fedeli alla realtà e ricchi di piacevoli sfumature, l'impeccabile nitidezza ed il simpatico soggetto.
Una foto che merita di essere elogiata per la cura della ripresa e per il soggetto originale per la commistione di natura ed animali.
Ciao e buona serata

Hello Daniel - What an idyllic mountain scene. The shot has a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere created by the palette of greens, the beautiful turquoise water and the contented looking cows. A beautiful location. TFS. Warm regards Rosemary

une belle image,bien composée avec ciel, montagne enneigée, végétation et lac; la palette des tons verts est remarquable.
Les vaches animent ce paysage de montagne.

This is Switzerland on his best, what a lovely picture with the cows in foreground.
Also the mountains care for a wonderful picture.
You chose a very well angle this cares for depth and perspective.
Colours and sharpness are pleasant to look at.
Very well done.

I'll take the steep 2hour walk anyday!
the walk would certainly be worth it.
its a bit funny to see cows up here, we don't really have that along our hikes :)
Looking around, I'd like to see what hikes are available in the surrounding area too.
lovely shot with the animals, mountains, greenery mixed with snow and just the overall view.
see you around
