Photographer's Note

Dark mood over the Lake Bourget, that inspired the famous poem "The Lake" by the Franch poet Alphonse de Lamartine, which starts with the words you read in the title.
Funnily enough, I had to comment on this specific poem for my Baccalauréat but I think I did alright so I don't resent the guy!
The Lake Bourget is the largest and the deepest lake located entirely within France.
About the picture itself well, B&W conversion because of the dull light and graduated filters to rescue the sky!
