Around this time of year, often after my parents have made their trip to see us and enjoy the Swiss autumn, the clouds gather and hide the mountains for a few days. Once plenty of rain has fallen and the trees have been thrashed around a little to help them lose some of their brightly coloured foliage, the clouds lift and leave this view behind. I see this view every morning as I pelt along the motorway to work and marvel once again at the beauty of the country I call home.
