IF: Underwater

Let's jump right in:

October here in the south is actually just a more pleasant summer experience. When you go apple picking, don't expect a brisk breeze and hot cider. In reality it's usually rather hot and sweaty and you feel like taking a swim. So this weekend when our apple picking plans fell through, we did the logical thing and headed straight for the lake.

With the "Underwater" theme, I was tempted to add some mermaids and monsters, but I didn't want to spoil anyone's future swimming experience. 
I was reminded that this is a man made lake, and like many lakes in Switzerland, it covers a valley that used to be farmed. Swiss legends are full of submerged villages and water nixies, so that could be a fun future series of drawings...
