2019 in review: Swiss winter landscapes

For my first blog post in review of 2019, I decided to pick out a few of my favourite wintry photographs from last year in Switzerland, which show the kind of classical landscape photography I love.

The pleasure is in the process

What I get out of taking the time and effort to take landscape images with a proper camera, and printing them to make proper photographs you can hold in your hand.

The Perimeter is a photography project by Quintin Lake, based on walking 10,000km around the coast of Britain in sections. The journey started on 17th April 2015 at St Paul’s cathedral.

Riffelsee to Riffelalp, Zermatt

Before the proper snow arrived at the start of this year’s winter season, we visited Zermatt and visited the famous, much-photographed view of the Matterhorn from Riffelsee.

Hiking in Edale

Hiking on Kinder Scout; the highest hill in the Peak District, which we ascended from the picturesque village of Edale.

Faltschen, Kandertal, Switzerland

Dense, grey fog on the lakes in the Bernese Oberland means that it’s best to head for the surrounding hills and mountains to get above the cloud and into the sunshine. We took a drive up a road we’d never used before – an unrestricted, toll-free one for a change – and ended up high […]

The luck and beauty of life

We are ever grateful for the opportunity to live in such a beautiful country. For the luck which means that we are of sufficient means to decide, based on a weather forecast, to drive for fifteen minutes and ascend in a rattling funicular cabin to a place which feels like the top of the world. All to […]

Above the clouds for lunch

I’ve never been one for sitting around at lunchtime. Give me time to do nothing, either during the day or in the evening, and I’ll end up dozing off. I like to use the midday hour for something productive; whether spending time with team colleagues, working on personal projects, catching up on email, walking the […]

Waldeggallmi, Switzerland

Ever on the search for “perfect” viewpoints in the Bernese Oberland, I sometimes end up driving up tiny roads in the hope that they’ll lead me to a new photograph. A (luckily tarmaced) single-track road, for which you have to buy an inexpensive day permit at the shop in Waldegg from a machine by the roadside near […]

Brienz, Switzerland

Going through my photo archives, I sometimes come across images from long ago which I’d forgotten about. This view of the lake next to the office where I used to work dates back to December 2006.

Bamford Edge, Derbyshire

I visited the English Peak District for the first time this autumn and was much impressed. After many years of visiting the dramatic Lake District, a little further north, I’d been worried that the landscape would be tame in comparison, with gentle hills instead of dramatic mountains. What I found was a different landscape for […]

Latrigg viewpoint, Keswick

I follow a couple of photographers and film-makers who post images and sequences from the English Lake District to their social media channels. Jason Chambers’ landscape photos are terrific and make me want to visit the region even more often, while Terry Abraham’s films go a stage further by adding sequences and interviews which go beyond the static beauty […]

Breithorn, Zermatt

The valley at Zermatt is surrounded by nearly three dozen peaks with summits higher than 4,000 metres above sea level. The Breithorn is well-known as the “easiest” to ascend: although easiness is, of course, a matter of reference. The number of tiny, ant-like climbers on the slopes leading from the Breithorn Plateau was quite amazing, when […]

RAW-format panoramic images at Permanent Tourist

Part of the joy of photography for me is the ability to travel in time. Not like Marty and the Doc in my favourite ever films, which celebrated a big milestone a few days ago, but in the ability to look at a scene in large levels of detail as it was many years ago. […]
