Aeschiried to Greberegg

The hill above Aeschiried has been calling to me ever since we moved to Faulensee. It’s immediately obvious, when looking up the hill, that the views across the lake must be great. There are a few houses dotted across the hillside, and the sharp-eyed will notice a small ski lift leading up into the trees.… (Read More)

A website is never finished

You start off with an idea, progress it to a concept, make a design, fiddle with it for too long, then turn it into a working prototype. If all goes well, then you’re in for a couple more rounds of revisions and improvements, then the site gets filled with content and you launch the site.… (Read More)

Rigi Kulm, Switzerland

The hotel, station and television transmission relay tower on top of the Rigi mountain in central Switzerland. I love how this turned out: it looks like a model railway, but is, in fact, a real mountain peak.

Untertorbrücke, Bern

Big Wide World – new photo website online

My friend Habi and I have launched a new website for our panoramic photography: Big Wide World.

Puidoux, Switzerland

The views from the immense vineyards along the northern shore of Lac Léman (Lake Geneva) are pretty spectacular, no matter what time of day. At dusk, in early summer, the lights of the town of Vevey and Montreux twinkle in the distance, while the lanes amongst the vines are all but deserted.

Matthorn, Switzerland

Helicopters are a common sight in Switzerland, in particular when you’re hiking on the higher peaks of the alpine region. Here, a tourist helicopter passes in front of the Matthorn peak, near the summit of Pilatus.

Solothurn, Switzerland

Historic towns in Switzerland make the Christmas period especially magical for the photographer. In particular during the “blue hour”, between sunset and darkness.

Brunnialp, Switzerland

The Brunnihütte sits beneath the heights of the Morgenberghorn, overlooking the forests above Aeschi and Suldtal. We decided to hike there on a hot late summer day, but due to leaving home late, this viewpoint is as far as we got before having to turn back. Next time, we’ll leave earlier and make it all… (Read More)
