Photos from the collection panorama

Daily view

We moved into our new home in Faulensee last Friday. Thanks to some grotty weather, this morning has been the first time when a photo can truly do justice to the view from our balcony; to the left, the village of Faulensee; straight ahead, the view across the Thunersee to Merligen and the Justistal valley; […]

Clearing Storm, Thun

I needed to clear my head, so I abandoned my study books and headed for the hills on the far side of the Thunersee. My aim was to take some classical landscape photographs and let the fresh air and changeable weather clear my head. (It worked.)

Guttet-Feschel, Wallis, Switzerland

The ubiquity of tourist information in Switzerland and the wide-ranging coverage of the internet means that it’s usually pretty easy to find out about places. However, as was the case for the Brentjong satellite station, details of this massive tower – a television and communications broadcast antenna – are, as yet, unlisted anywhere that I […]

Morning mist over Thun

Sometimes a hunch pays off; here in the case of a quick diversion off the motorway on the way to work to take some shots of the "city of the alps": Thun, on the fringes of the Bernese Oberland.

Heading into the Alps

Thanks go to Jo for spotting the potential of this view as we headed through the countryside earlier this evening. After setting up the camera and preparing the left side of the panoramic shot, all I had to do was wait for the intercity from Bern to pass by and under the adjacent bridge, and […]

Alps from Kleinhöchstetten

Since buying a car, I’ve been on the search for a location from which to shoot my perfect view of the Alps near where I live. This wasn’t it, and the light was far from perfect, but I like it anyway.

Neuhaus and the Dreigestirn from Beatenberg

"Dreigestirn", literally translated, means three stars. This is a name often accorded locally to the famous three mountain peaks at the centre of the Bernese Oberland in Switzerland: the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

Glenmore Forest from Cairngorm

I’m returning to photos from our road trip this summer at last. This shot is less than sharp at full resolution (despite the use of a weighted tripod) due to the sheer power of the wind at this viewing point near the top of the road to the Cairngorm ski lift in Scotland. This was […]

Loch Garry, Scotland

The drive up the A9 main road from Perth to the north of Scotland is a great experience, although one which demands much patience as progress can be slow. Despite being the main route between northern and southern Scotland, the main road remains a single carriageway for much of its length. Reaching the Drumochter Pass, […]
