Photographer's Note

Lake Vänern is the largest lake in Sweden and the third largest lake in Europe.

It was formed after the last ice age about 10,000 years ago; when the ice melted, entire width Sweden was covered in water, creating a strait between Kattegat and the Gulf of Bothnia. Due to the ensuing isostatic rebound, lakes such as Vänern pursed off. As a result, there are still species remaining from the ice age not normally encountered in fresh water lakes.

Vänern covers an area of 5,655 km˛. It is located at 44 m above the sea level and is on average 27 m deep. The maximum depth of the lake is 106 m.
