Launensee, a natural canvas12.12.2011 Archiv
The tree branches turned into immaculate ice sculptures and the iced waterfall made a picture perfect scenario. Skating swiftly the children designed figures on the silver ice, doing slalom between the snow patches. No other noise, only the soft sqeaking of the blades of the skates. Not even locals from Lauenen, like Francisca and Bernard Annen, the owner of the grocery shop in the village, could believe that after the heavy snow fall of the past days the lake was still smooth like a ice rink. It was pure magic.Lauenensee was a "living " work of art. A natural canvas. Sometimes the nature likes to surprise us.
