Edited directly on my k810i prior to upload. PhotoDJ has some pretty amazing image editing capabilities, considering it’s only on a mobile phone!

Göschenen, canton Uri

Just below the Gotthard Pass, looking like a little model. I also have a high resolution version of this, made up of nine 10 mpx images, which I can’t wait to get printed.

Station, Brienz, Switzerland

Recycling, Spiez, Switzerland

There’s a Great Spring Clean going on at home at the moment, of which I have only been slightly involved. It’s wonderful coming home to a sparkling flat where the clean lines of furniture are visible again. Thanks baby, for all your hard work. (These aren’t our PET bottles, by the way.)
