A Visit to Paris…Notre Dame HDR

I finally visited Paris again…it was only my second time there. The beautiful river Seine and the little quartiers, like Montmartre and Quartier Latin. Then there are the majestic monuments, many of them with their own park, for example the Louvre with the Jardin des Tuileries…it was magnificent! Speaking of monuments: here is my HDR of the Notre Dame.

I decided to shoot it from a special angle, since the medieval archictecture comes out especially here. The Gothic construction style of that time is especially visible in the pillars outside.

What do you think of the picture? Have you ever been to Paris? Which is your favourite spot? Please comment below. If you liked the post, subscribe to my blog and/or click “Like”. Thanks!

Pilatus HDR

A week ago we hiked from Fräckmündegg to the Top of mount Pilatus. The ascent was quite demanding, the steps were up to 30 cm high. On our lunch break we saw some blueberrries, which made a lovely dessert.

Chamois in Mount Pilatus

When we arrived at the Top, we also saw some chamois. It was the first time I ever saw one out in the Wild. I also shot this picture from the top. There were some paragliders starting from the left, their manoevering looked quite scary and dangerous to me. I felt a lot safer where I stood. What about you? Have you ever been in such a place?

Would you rather go down in a Cable Car or in a Paraglider? Please comment below!

As some of you might have noticed, I took quite a fancy to panorama shots and HDRs. This is a HDR photo of the Urnersee, shot from Beckenried. The Urnersee is one leg of the Lake Lucerne, near the Rütli, where the birthplace of Switzerland lies. You can purchase this and other photographs to enhance your home. To do so, check out my Whitewall page!What are your thoughts on this view? Have you ever visited the “Ur-Schweiz”?

In Beckenried, there is a great bakery for a stop after one of the beautiful panorama hikes.

In February we made a tour from Flüelen along Lake Lucerne to the Tellsplatte, that historic spot where William Tell escaped from his captors on a stormy night, according to the legend. On the way I took this HDR picture. You can buy it and other motifs on my Whitewall page. Check it out!

On a winter’ s day, when the clouds were hanging over the city, we decided to go onto a mountain top to have the sun above and the clouds beneath us. The choice fell upon mount Rigi, and it was one of our most marvellous days this winter! There is nothing to relax you more than the mountain view and air! And some real snow:-)

This is one of the pictures I shot that you can buy. Take a look at the gallery here.

HDR Gabbiani in Lugano

When I was in Ticino recently I enjoyed the sunny weather immensely and that’ s how I got the idea to express the great atmosphere with an experiment. I know this photo won’ t match everyone’ s taste, but I wanted to try something new and a bit out of the ordinary. May the seagulls flying in the glistening sun make you smile for a moment despite the icy temperatures we have on the northern face of the alps.
