and finally the snow has arrived in the UK and what chaos! It’s great to live in a country like Switzerland where everything pretty much works regardless of how many inches of snow are on the ground…
Today’s post is to remind you to look around you… on your way to work (especially if you are in traffic!), on the school run, on your way back from a night out… we are all so busy nowadays and it’s so easy NOT to really ‘see’ what’s around us – being interested in photography means you look at the world in a different way and discover things in the unlikeliest of places and weather. Of course, we don’t always have the time but it doesn’t really take too long. I had planned to go and take photos in the snow a few weeks ago but by the time I got out with my camera, the sunny weather had disappeared and it was cold and foggy. So my photos were not what I was expecting but I enjoyed those few hours parked up on a mountain road, changing my manual settings as the fog came down… and trying to feel my fingers (note to self: buy fingerless gloves)… here are a few from a few trips up the Zugerberg which is a 10 minute drive away. Enjoy!
This shot was taken by the International school on the Zugerberg.
I found some logs which had been felled and got caught up in taking some detail shots.
This is the St. Verena Chapel half-way up the Zugerberg which I love to shoot in different seasons.
Sina the dog was having fun in the snow with her owner…
… and this just reminded me of Christmas – next year’s Christmas Card maybe?
