Steamers plying on lake Lucerne, the most picturousque lake in Switzerland.
Lake Lucerne is a lake in central Switzerland and the fourth largest in the country.
The lake has a complicated shape, with bends and arms reaching from the city of Lucerne into the mountains. It has a total area of 114 km² , an elevation of 434 m and a maximum depth of 214 m . Much of the shoreline rises steeply into mountains up to 1,500 m above the lake, resulting in many picturesque views including those of Mount Rigi and Mount Pilatus.
The Reuss River enters the lake at Flüelen (in the canton of Uri, the part called Urnersee) and exits at Lucerne. The lake also receives the Muota (at Brunnen) Engelberger Aa (at Buochs), the Sarner Aa (at Alpnachstad).
It is possible to circumnavigate the lake by road, though the route is slow, twisted, and goes through tunnels part of the way. Dozens of steamers ply between the different towns on the lake. It is a popular tourist destination, both for native Swiss and foreigners, and there are many hotels and resorts along the shores.

We see clear the Swiss flag on the boat.
What a lovely panoramic view about these area.
Sharpness and clarity are perfectly.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice evening,

this is a very familiar view for me :)
it looks like a postcard, and, of course, I love the blue mountains in the background!
probably I'd move the camera a bit to the right... or shot a few moments earlier :)

Three days ago I was in Lucerne. It was sunny and warm day.
You are presenting an excellently composed and finely detailed image with nice simple colors in very good light. A great viewpoint and also perfect DOF. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the ship. Very well done.

une jolie carte postale de cet endroit suisse, comme tu le dis, un lac très touristique à l'instar du Lac Léman.
Les Alpes impressionnantes à l'arrière plan, des lumières très difficiles bien maîtrisées.
