The Alpsee is a lake in the Ostallgäu district of Bavaria, Germany, located about 4 kilometres southeast of Füssen. It is close to the Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles.
The lake has just under five kilometres of shoreline and a depth of up to 62 metres. It is a popular tourist attraction, given its proximity to the castles and the wild swans that inhabit the lake. Boats are available for rent and there is a wide variety of hiking trails in the vicinity. A circular path leads around the shore, and the "Fürstenstrasse" (Princes' Road) leads from Hohenschwangau over the Schwarzenberg ridge and down to Pinswang in the Lechtal.

a very pleasing summer scene with swans, geese and ducks completing the scenery. Amazing backdrop with those mountains with an interesting sky above them.
This seems to be a very pleasing place for a summer stroll to cool down.
have a good weekend

Une belle image romantique. On dirait que les canards noirs ont décidé d'encercler les beaux cygnes blancs. Une belle image profonde et nette.

This highly picturesque lake has very pretty inhabitants. You has captured the scene with well-balanced composition, attractive foreground, very aesthetic back ground, good light and vivid colors despite the overcasting sky. In addition, the quality of the image is very high. Excellent job!

Amazing clarity of the fg water with good sharpness and excellent repetition of the swans & ducks. A slight tilt to the left easily fixed in photoshop. The 2 craggy bg peaks in the centre make a good distant focal point. Tfs!

With green mountains as the backdrop, the swans and ducklings dotted on the water, this Alpsee lake is very pretty.

lovely view. I like the multiple layers of the composition. Especially nice various colors of the water depending on the depth and what we see at the bottom. The birds make a pleasant foreground.
Very well done,
