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!

Urnersee HDR, shot from Beckenried

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 Gabbiani in Lugano

HDR Gabbiani , originally uploaded by the real Caffeamore.

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.

Any opinions are welcome, please comment below!

Gabbiano at the shores of Lago di Lugano

In the winter months the grey misty scenery can be a bit grinding, that’ s why I enjoyed a day in Ticino (the southern, italian-speaking region of Switzerland) so much. There was blue sky and the sun, and it was about 6 degrees warmer than on the northern side of the Alps. This Gabbiano was very happy to be fed some bread by a walker, and so was I because I got to make this picture! Hope you enjoy!
