4 Boats and 4 Ducks on Lake Lucerne

There were lots of weather changes on our trip. There was light fog when I took this shot.
Our hotel in Lucerne had wonderful views and it was right on the lake. Normally there were swans all around but this time the ducks had the place to themselves.

This will be my Watery Wednesday entry.

  10. Even through the fog, the water seems so clear. I can see the bottom of the lake in the foreground. Gives a great peaceful mood of solitude and silence.
