Lej da Staz (Lake Staz) is one of my top photography spots in Switzerland. Not even challenging to get there – just a 30 min. walk from St. Moritz – this little lake is again and again worth checking out.Continue reading “Golden Fall at Lej da Staz”
The Greina High-Plateau offers an exceptional nature experience! The 1 km wide and 6 km long plateau is linking 3 valleys at around 2’200 m a.s.l.: Lumnezia in the east, Sumvitg in the north and Blenio in the south. No cable car or chair lift gets you there, only your own feet! The shot above shares the view from the east.Continue reading “The Greina High-Plateau: wide, wild, untapped”
On the occasion of today’s Wold Photography Day I’d like to publish a shot from my favorite photography place: Iceland.
On the occasion of today’s Swiss national holiday I once again like to publish a shot from a beautiful and iconic spot in Switzerland. This year I selected the Oeschinen Lake. It’s located close to Kandersteg in the Bernese Alps. The lake belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch.
Today I’m adding another location that looks like from another country but is from Switzerland!Continue reading “The Dolomites? – No, Switzerland!”
As big travel is tricky these days, why not taking a closer look on what’s directly around us – or above us …? This red kit is circling since a while above my town. It’s a pretty impressive bird with its 1.50 m wing span and its really nice plumage in particular if the evening sun lightens it up.

It is located in the French Alps and belongs to the so called Graian Alps. The shot above and the one below show the north-west side.Continue reading “The 10 most dominant Mountains of the Alps: #1 – Mont Blanc”
The Piz Bernina (Dominance 138 km – Height 4’049 m) is my favorite mountain and the second most dominant of the Alps. It is located in the canton Graubünden and from the top 10 dominant mountains of the Alps the most eastern. It is actually the only mountain of the eastern Alps reaching 4’000 m.Continue reading “The 10 most dominant Mountains of the Alps: #2 – Piz Bernina”
