Meeting Point

"The iron staircase shortens the distance to the distant lake shore, thereby creating the illusion of an unexpected encounter. The beholder in Spiez can take a leap in time and space, and imagine following the small pioneer at the top of the stairway." Artist: Marianne Lutz See also: Worlds’ Encounter

Free Ride

Moving very slowly along the pontoon, so as not to alarm the male swan in attendance, I managed to get close enough to Spiez harbour’s resident swans’ new family, including this little one hitching a ride. Best viewed at larger size (contacts only).

Changeable (Brienzersee)

See also "Changeable (Thunersee)", the adjacent photo in my photostream, which was taken about half an hour earlier and 20 kilometres further west. Both of these shots were taken from the train during my journey to work this morning.

The Darkness

A perfect day for staying inside, wrapping ourselves in blankets and drinking lots of tea. Sadly, the planned Flickr meet-up was called on account of rain, so we’ll organize something over here at a later date.
