Photographer's Note

''Lake Brienz (German: Brienzersee) is a lake just north of the Alps, in the Canton of Berne in Switzerland. The lake took its name from the village Brienz on its northern shore. Interlaken and the villages Matten and Unterseen lie to the south west of the lake. The shores are steep, and there is almost no shallow water in the entire lake.


The lake lies in a deep hollow between the village of Brienz on the east and, on the west, B霵igen, close to Interlaken. Its length is about 9 miles, its width 1 miles, and its maximum depth 856 feet, while its area is 11 square miles, and the surface is 564 metres (1,850 ft) above the sea-level. On the south shore are the Giessbach Falls and the hamlet of Iseltwald. On the north shore are a few small villages.''
