Almost like the edge of the long did it take you to decide on this shot? Looks like a damned cold morning.

So does anyone know where the sand came from? I mean I know this is in a glacial basin, but is it actually a glacial deposit, or did someone think it would be great to have a beach at a lake ;) ?

I presume the sand was once the riverbed of a glacial river - in the same way that gravel eskers formed in the midlands as rivers formed on the underside of glaciers as they began to retreat.

Angh - didn't take too long to decide to take the shot. It looked really eerie that morning (and very cold too)
