Photographer's Note

This is Derborence, high above Sion in the Canton of Valais. Derborence is reached by a scary single-track road with a galleried section where the road follows the side of a deep ravine. Despite this, it's something of a magnet for daytrippers, hikers and, of course, photographers.

This is from the downstream end of the lake which was formed after a rockfall in the 18th century blocked the Derbonne river, looking north.
