This is still part of Au Pont Saint Martin restaurant, which is next to the main building. We were hoping to have out dinner there, but no way… apparently good client distribution is more important than level of client’s happiness ­čśë

Here’s a POV experience of a weekend trip to Salbitschijen, Switzerland.

The Salbitschijen is a mountain in the Urner Alps, overlooking G├Âschenen in the canton of Uri. It lies at the southern extremity of the range of the Fleckistock.

Took this photo while I was hiking in the Sch├Ânau am K├Ânigssee. I found this small pond above the K├Ânigssee lake and I couldn’t resist the view and stop there to take a few shots. There also were other hikers, so hey, I hope they don’t mind this shot ­čśë

I don’t have the luxury of living in a place where the light pollution is so low that it could allow to capture the Milky Way. That being said, last weekend I finally found myself in a position to photograph it, during my stay in Swiss Alps. Here are the results.

Last weekend I went with some friends to see Salbitbr├╝cke and take some pictures of it and the area. It is a high alpine pedestrian suspension bridge located on the way to the top of Salbitschijen in G├Âschenen, Switzerland. Soon I’ll publish some pictures, enjoy the video just for now ­čÖé


Took this photo while I was hiking in the Sch├Ânau am K├Ânigssee. I found this small pond above the K├Ânigssee lake and I couldn’t resist the view and stop there to take a few shots. Luckily I had a tripod and an intervalometer so I could easily compose an HDR sequence with me in the shot ­čÖé
