The town of Zug is on the Zugersee, one of Switzerland's many lakes. This view is of the waterfront at the old town, on a cloudy day. The wharf in the foreground appears to be floating above the water, but a close look shows it is supported by some piers underneath.
Photoshop used to lighten up the dark parts and to adjust contrast and saturation.

I like the view of this lovely, colourful waterfront. Clarity, colours and evening light are splendid. I also like very much the lustrous surface with its marvellous textures and reflections. The view to the depth showing us a similar neighbourhood in the distance is a fine addition. The birds standing on the poles are a pleasant detail and a sign of life. Thanks!
All the best and a lovely weekend,
