This week’s Sunday gallery contains a hundred different shades of blue and green – from a dark emerald green over lighter green shades to a sparkling, vivid turquoise and a bottomless sapphire blue.
The Walensee, where these pictures were taken, is in my opinion one of the most fascinating lakes of Switzerland. Not only because of its natural beauty, but also because of some interesting facts there are to know about this mountain lake:
- It is connected to the lake of Zurich by the river “Linth”.
- At its deepest point it is 145 meters deep.
- It is the only lake in Switzerland that has never been completely frozen.
- The name means “lake of the Welschen”, because in the Middle Ages the Walensee was the language boundary between the Alemanni in the West and the Rhaeto-Romanic people (or “die Welschen”) in the east.
I hope you enjoy the colourful gallery! Have an amazing Sunday everyone 🙂
