Swiss stock photography produced for Getty Images


Dusk settles over Lake Thun, Switzerland

One of a series of new stock images produced exclusively for Getty Images. This one is of dusk settling over Lake Thun in Switzerland. The five buoys in the shot make the image for me, looking like marbles on a glass surface. Additionally, it was important there were only five of them; six and the whole composition would be unbalanced. Five of course is a Fibonacci number – and it’s always useful to know about Fibonacci numbers in composition. In the distance are the glaciers of the Eiger/Jungfrau mountain range.
