Photo of the Week: Lake Annecy

Lake Annecy, France

A stunning body of water in the Haute-Savoie region of the French Alps, Lake Annecy offers great inspiration for a photographer. With plenty of waterside subjects and towering mountains providing a perfect backdrop, it’s easy to spend hours just wandering its shore. If you’d like to read more about Annecy you can check out my latest post over at World Spa & Travel.

Inspired by Alex over at Alex in Wanderland, I’ve decided to start doing a weekly feature with a bunch of photos taken at the same location. I’ll then ask you, my lovely readers, to give your opinion on which is your favourite. Or maybe you won’t like any of them! That’s ok too, any criticism (hopefully constructive) is appreciated as well.

This week the location is Lake Annecy which I visited just a few weeks ago for the first time with the NEX 6.

    I like A, C and D. Really like the flashes of colour and just love looking at water and boats and that…. Oh, all right, B is nice too. I think I would like to go to Annecy next year…

      Haha, thanks Nancy! I love the colour too. You can’t beat a good mountain lake. And Annecy is definitely worth a visit!

    It’s all A for me. Striking colour and detail. It almost doesn’t look real. What equipment / software are you using? Thanks for sharing. Toby

      Thanks Toby! I’m currently using the Sony NEX 6, primarily with the kit lens. For post-processing it’s all Lightroom for me, generally just a bit of boost to the clarity and to bring out some highlights. What kit are you using at the moment?

        Amazing! Really impressive. I’m all digital I’m afraid. A combination of iPhone, Canon SLR and GoPro combined with some assistance from Snapseed. Look forward to more of your pics

      Thanks Susan! The mountains around Lake Annecy are particularly picturesque. It’s a great spot! Thanks for stopping by.
