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.

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.
On a rainy weekend like this, I try to think of the sunny spots on earth, like my favourite Island, the Isola Del Giglio. Its name might be familiar to you because of the cruise ship that is still lying there, but I’ ve known the Island for over 20 years. I love the Italian culture, the ocean, the climate and size of the island, the fact that two thirds of it is integral nature reserve and the macchia. Then there is good coffee (like anywhere in Italy) and in autumn you find Porcini. Then take a look at the picture and you’ ll find a couple more reasons why I love this place so much. And I don’ t like the fact that the island’ s pure waters would almost have been polluted and lots of animals would have lost their natural habitat. All for a captain who wanted to show off instead of taking his responsibility seriously.

Here are some “bubbly” shots:

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 know the day is almost over, but I still wanted to post a beautiful picture to celebrate women’ s day! To all the ladies who follow their dreams, are strong and independent and live life on their own terms!!! To all Amazonicas out there, keep it up! And to those who haven’ t had the strength to listen to their hearts, maybe today is the day to change that…?
VIVA LA DONNA!!!

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.
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.
