Boathouse - Obersee, Lake Constance, Germany 
by Mark Whale

The Obersee ("Upper Lake") is the larger of the two parts of Lake Constance.

It has an area of 473 km² in size and extends over 63 km between Bregenz and Bodman-Ludwigshafen. Its maximum width is 14 km. The Romans called it Lacus Venetus, Lacus Brigantinus and Lacus Constantinus. In the Middle Ages the dominant term was Lacus Bodamicus, or in German Bodensee. Gradually, this name began to include the Untersee (Lacus Acronius), so the term "Upper Lake" was introduced for the larger lake.

The Upper Lake is drained by the Seerhein in Constance, which flows into the Lower Lake. Its main tributary is the Alpine Rhine.

Parts of the Upper Lake are the Lake Überlingen, the Bregenz Bay and the Constance Hopper. Lake Überlingen is sometimes considered to be a separate lake, in which case the name "Obersee" only refers to the section between Bregenz and Constance.

The lake is bordered by the Swiss cantons of Thurgau and St. Gallen, by the Austrian state of Vorarlberg and the German states of Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria. The demarcation of their borders within the southeastern part of the Obersee has never been formally agreed upon (see further explanation at Lake Constance – International borders). Only the smaller northwestern Lake Überlingen is completely German territory.

Mars may appear to be dry and desolate, but the Red Planet can be surprisingly humid — perhaps humid enough to support life, some scientists say.

Grand Bend - Photography by +Mark Metternich   www.wildforlight.com At 3000 feet down (915 Meters) this might be the largest goose-neck bend in the world (remote Grand Canyon). Words can not describe what it is like, seeing it in person. The best way is to park your vehicle right near the edge and car-camp out in the remote with the canyon right out your vehicle or tent opening. Also, truly awe inspiring is to watch the Milky Way come up right over the the scene. If you are interested in a grandiose adventurous photo tour for the more hearty, I have 2 spots left on my “4 Bends in 4 Days” Workshop. It is a very special 5 day workshop (for the more hearty adventurer) with one full day dedicated to post processing training. Shoot me a message to: WildForLight@gmail.com if you are interested in being on my tour announcement list. I will send you a free PDF brochure of this or other tours. 

2016 is going to be an amazing year of tours and travel. In fact I now live on the road 365 days a year, either leading photography tours or doing my own personal shooting. - Mark Metternich
