this is a view over lago maggiore, a lake both in Switzerland and Italy. The lake is 68km long but only 3 to 5 km wide and snakes its way inbetween the italian and swiss prealps. It has a mediterranian climat and is home to some of the most beautiful gardens in Switzerland, namely the gardens on the Isola di Brissago, two tiny islands in the swiss part of the lake and the Borromean islands on the italian side. The lake itself forms the lowest point above sea level in all Switzerland, only 193m. Thus the bottom of the lake lies mostly below sea level.

We're neighbors this evening, Daniel. This kind of glacial lake I associate with the North American Northwest quite a bit. Nice shot of it, with the water acting as a mirror reflecting the bright sunlight and creating a late afternoon feel, while the scene stretches back into the mist perfectly. Beautiful scene.

Hi Daniel view. I was on the Garda lake and went by boat on Como, I would like to see also Maggiore one day, specially these beautiful islands.

Nice panoramic view about these area, with combination between green of the trees and the mountains in background
This care for depth and perspective.
Your colors are attractive and excellent composition.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,
