Swan (Cygnini) in Autumn Reflections - Adelberg, Herrenbach Artificial Lake, Germany

Newer Older

The water was beautifully coloured by the autumn leaves and the swan looked rather curious at me. I thought this scene was worth to take a photo of him.

The Herrenbach artificial lake situated near the Abbey Adelberg (Germany, Baden-Württemberg) was built around 1970. The 22 m high and 220 m long dam built from groundmaterial can almost hold back 2 million cubic meters of water. The water is of up to 18 meters deep and has an area of about 10 hectares. It is a very delightful recreation area because of the scenic location.

Warmly recommend to View Large On Black

Der Schwan schaute mich sehr neugierig an als ich die Aufnahme machte.
Anfang der 70er Jahre wurde der Herrenbachstausee gelegen bei der Klosteranlage Adelberg (Baden-Württemberg, ca. 30 Autominuten von Stuttgart) nach wiederholten Überschwemmungen als Hochwasserrückhaltebecke im Herrenbachtal angelegt. Der 22 m hohe und 220 m lange Staudamm aus Erdmaterial kann knapp 2 Mio. m³ Wasser zurückhalten. Der See hat eine Wassertiefe von bis zu 18 Metern und eine Fläche von rund 10 ha. Durch seine landschaftlich schöne Lage ist es ein sehr reizvolles Naherholungsgebiet.
