Schwarzsee is one of those places of Switzerland that are practically unknown for foreign visitors. Surrounding mountains are not as massive as more well known destinations. Height of surrounding peaks are on the range of 2000 m. Anyway the area offers wide range of outdoor activities and is quite popular among residents of Fribourg region.
One activity I hadn't seen before is operating radio controlled sail boats.

Hello KAri ,
A splendid lake in a wonderful mountain scenery . The two little sails are very good bonus .

You captured a very peaceful mood on the lake's waters, and a subtle, subdued light, contrasting with the brightness in the sky and on the peaks behind. I like the muted colours and control of the highlights such as the white sails of the little yachts. Altogether a pleasing landscape.

A very impressive landscape and a fine picturewith soft and subdued colours. The boat models are nicely placed in the picture too.

A really fine composition with the surface of the lake and the highest peak of the mountain range in the background at 1/3 horizontally and vertically respectively. The lighting was perhaps not perfect but the sails of the radio controlled boat certainly brighten up the scene. TFS and have a nice Sunday evening!

I like your latest post, but this view is more attractive to me. Lovely peaceful landscape, perfect DoF. I was in the South part of Switzerland, I can't say that there is similar or just look like landscape.

Beautiful scene especially those mountains! Do they allow regular sailing on this lake? Nicely captured with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
