Here’s a POV experience of a weekend trip to Salbitschijen, Switzerland. The Salbitschijen is a mountain in the Urner Alps, overlooking Göschenen in the canton of Uri. It lies at the southern extremity of the range of the Fleckistock. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salbitschijen

Took this photo while I was hiking in the Schönau am Königssee. I found this small pond above the Königssee 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 😉 (Click to see larger) Photo details: Nikon D800; 28-300mm f3.5-5.6; 1/500 sec at f/8; ISO 100.

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.
