  View over Lake Torneträsk
by sim1

One thing that is hard to avoid when visiting Abisko is a view over Lake Torneträsk. In the picture you can see a view over the lake from Mount Njulla. The colour of the lake is so blue! It doesn't really matter if you see the lake from the top of the mountain, or stand at is shores. It always seems to have something magical over it.

The lake is huge, in total 322 km2 with a length of 70 km and depth of 230 metres. Trying to capture the lake on photo wasn't an easy thing to do though! There seems to be this haze in the air every day (during my visit that was the case anyway), making it impossible to capture the lake in its true beauty.
