Magic of Dawn

— This series was made in February 2022 at Lac de Joux in Switzerland. It is the largest lake of the Jura massif.

If we are lucky, the lake freezes in winter. Usually it only lasts a few days, so you have to take the opportunity. Furthermore, it did not freeze since 2019, so I couldn’t miss the occasion. Based on the forecast, there was only one Saturday morning that promised a beautiful sunrise.

For these photos, I wanted to reflect the magical atmosphere of the dawn, right before sunrise. I love when the cold and warm colours mix up together and when there are still stars in the sky. The frozen surface of the lake gives an icy, structured dimension that I really wanted to have in my photographs.
