Oeschinen Lake is a lake in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland, 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) east of Kandersteg in the Oeschinen valley. At an elevation of 1,578 metres (5,177 ft), it has a surface area of 1.1147 square kilometres (0.4304 sq mi). Its maximum depth is 56 metres (184 ft). The lake is fed through a series of mountain creeks and drains underground. The water then re-surfaces as the Oeschibach. Part of it is captured for electricity production and as water supply for Kandersteg. In observations from 1931 to 1965, the elevation of the lake surface varied between 1,566.09 metres (5,138.1 ft) and 1,581.9 metres (5,190 ft). The average seasonal variation was 12.2 metres (40 ft) (September/April). The lake is generally frozen during five months, from December to May. From time to time ice skating is possible on ice.

The dunes of Death Valley. To be honest I didn’t see much death out there this time of year, stovepipe Wells was thriving with RV’s , day tourists, photographers and hiking enthusiasts from all over the world.
To say the least it was kinda pumping in the desert 🏜. Made this shot late in the afternoon , after walking to the pinnacle of the dunes the wind picked up and made so some interesting dune hiking!
