World's most beautiful lakes

One could argue that, among the Earth’s natural features, lakes do the most with the least — they are, after all, simply static bodies of water. That flat perspective falls light-years short of the many marvels the world’s lakes offer us humans who visit them, swim in them, fish in them, boat upon them, and just plain admire them.

It is widely reported that Lake Vermillion in Northern Minnesota is one of the Worlds most beautiful lakes. I often wonder where MSN gets their information in these reports. They really are not very well researched it often seems. Also Lake Superior, with it's very rugged shoreline, is at least ten times more beautiful than Lake Michigan. That was a clearly a miss. I have seen Lake Chelan in Washington. It's nice, nothing special. Rather boring shoreline.

Lake Charlevoix in Michigan is prettier than 1/2 the lakes pictured.  Also missing are Loch Lomond and Loch Earne in Scotland.
