Oeschinensee, Switzerland

One of the more spectacular mountain lakes in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland is at Oeschinensee, in a hanging valley easily reached by cable car from the town of Kandersteg. If you’re feeling lazy, then the walk to the lakeside restaurant is a fairly easy one. If you’re more adventurous, then there are a network of paths leading up into the higher…

Big Wide World is coming home

I started a website project in May, featuring the panoramic photographs I’m taking for an ongoing personal project I call Big Wide World.

Hondrich Hill, Switzerland

There are viewpoints all over the place near where we live. But this one proved to be a bit of a surprise. The sun had woken me comparatively early on a Saturday morning, so I wrapped up warm against the cold, donned my hiking boots, and set off and upwards from home with no particular goal. After crossing under the main…
