Ascent to the Schilthorn

It’s easy to overlook the obvious drama of the local landscape when living in Switzerland; particularly when taking photos of a place you know so well. Video is something which I’m appreciating more and more these days, having bought a video-capable dSLR. My friend and photographic colleague Graham filmed his ascent to the world-famous Piz Gloria station on the Schilthorn when he was in Switzerland recently and the film shows, much better than any photograph, how dramatic the ride is. From the glowing green meadows to the experience of floating through the clouds whilst hanging from a cable, the eight and a half minute film allows you to see so much more than any set of photos would.
