Photographer's Note

This is Lac Blanc, an alpine lake in the Alps above Chamonix. The blue-green color of the water comes from minerals and is typical of water from melting glaciers. This is a very popular (a little TOO popular) destination for hikers--after riding a lift it's about 4 km to here on an easy trail. You don't even have to carry lunch, because there's a restaurant by the lake.
