Just before the Snow

It has been snowing down to the lower areas in Switzerland the past days: Winter finally arrived in my area.

The Klöntalersee is a lake in the Canton of Glarus, Switzerland. The lake has a size of about 3.3 kmÂČ and has been created by a prehistoric rock slide after the last ice age. From 1908 on it is used as a reservoir for electricity production. The picture below is from the Schwammhöhe looking down to the lake.
