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!

RHW Panorama (Switzerland) or: a place close to paradise

Featured

This is a panorama of a place that is very special to me: It shows the place where I grew up. There are many places for the community, for example a soccer field, a basketball field, a Pool room, and rooms for meetings or parties. There is a big garden, where some inhabitants grow their own vegetables, flowers and herbs, and if you cross the street, you’ re at the lake. In summer, during the holidays, it is idyllic. You can stay out on the terrace, have a barbecue, and enjoy your homegrown vegetables on a homemade Pizza. I truly am blessed to have been brought up in this place!

Giglio Campese: spiagga, acqua e il faraglione

Featured

I’ ve declared my love for this place a few times now, and I can’ t wait to go back. There’ s such a feeling of bliss when you swim in the clean, turqoise water in the baia del Campese, or take the surfboard and go out to the farthest rock you see there, which is called the “faraglione”, or the “tooth” by us. You can also go on foot to that spot. From there you can see the Island of Monte Christo, and if the sight is clear, you even see Sardinia.

Urnersee HDR, originally uploaded by the real Caffeamore.

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.

HDR of Urnersee, Flüelen in the foreground: my pictures on your wall!

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!

I have taken a fancy to Panorama shots of late and wanted to share this view over Zürich I shot on a beautiful November day with you.

Nature is so changeable. For Instance, you can watch a sunset at the same spot a million times, it won’ t look the same twice. I was fascinated by the ambiance that night in Giglio, so I captured it with a picture. Enjoy!
