Lake Lucerne

If you are blinded by colors, get rid of them

I know I'm living in a very picturesque region and I probably do not appreciate it enough but every time I see this view I get reminded of that fact. I'm literally living just around 4 miles away from where I shot this picture.

The tallest mountain in the background is Mount Pilatus and the lake right below it is Lake Lucerne.

While the weather prevented super moon photography on Saturday here in Central Switzerland, it cleared up on Sunday and even though it was just 98.54% full, the light was still spectacular. Just to make it clear, I have not shot a single exposure with the moon in the frame, I only used the moon as a reflector of the sunlight for my photographs.

All but the last picture shown here were shot in Brunnen at Lake Lucerne. The last picture shows Lake Lauerz with Rigi in the background.

I created a gallery on my Portfolio site with more supermoonlight photographs.
