Photographer's Note

Might have been taken a few days ago, but is in fact two years old.
The maar lakes of the Eifel uplands are water filled calderas and thus of volcanic origin. From initially over 70 maar volcanoes, there are only 12 lakes left.

Laacher See volcano erupted in 10930 B.C. Pumice was transported by winds as far as to Italy. The lake with its 3.3 sqkm is the greatest maar and also the greatest lake of Rhineland-Palatinate.

Laacher See is a centre of cultural and religious life in northern Rhineland-Palatinate due to its adjacent monastery of Maria Laach.
