Photographer's Note

Oeschinensee is a bowl like alpine lake high above the village of Kandersteg. The lake is fed through a series of mountain creeks and drains underground. For that reason water level has high seasonal variation. Area of the lake is just above 1 square km, but against massive mountain peaks it actually looks smaller.

Oeschinensee is a popular destination for hikers, but these cows have a privilege to really live there.
