Posts about mountains

  • I was keen to do more winter hiking this year, and although winter seems to have flown by, I did manage to get out into the snow more often than in previous years. Most recently, we got the big cable-car up from Grindelwald to Eigergletscher with the intention of then getting the short train connection…

  • Blair Castle

    After a twelve year wait, I finally get a decent photograph of Blair Castle, near Pitlochry in Scotland.

  • The Alpine Chain

    Re-photographing the Bernese Alps from a viewpoint I found last year.

  • A year with a drone in Switzerland

    By Christian Cueni.

  • The shore of Lake Thun at Gwatt is a great place to photograph the sunrise and the sunset.

  • Views from home across the lake to the Niederhorn on a winter Sunday.

  • Completely inappropriate to the season, but what the heck. A beautiful sequence of clips filmed – mainly with a drone – in and above Beatenberg, looking over the lake shores I call home. The film was made by Maximilian Eckmann whilst staying in a local holiday apartment.

  • The wider angle

    First shots with two new acquisitions: a super-wide lens and an RR90 shutter release cable.

  • 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.

  • A winter drive along a ten-mile single-track road in northern Scotland led to a remote church and a still, wet, beautiful landscape.

  • A long-held ambition fulfilled: to hike to my favourite glacier near the Susten Pass in Switzerland.

  • Oberberghorn

    I’ve been looking at the tooth-like promontory in the distance quite regularly, ever since we moved to Faulensee. It’s a very distinct peak on the eastern side of the Schynige Platte and one which begs to be explored.

  • For The Love Of Mountains

    A beautiful little sequence by motion designer Al Boardman to represent some statistics from mountains around the world. Found via fubiz.net.

  • Such a backlog

    A shot from a late autumn drive through the Jura mountains on the way home from Basel; one of many, many photos in a backlogged queue of shots I’d like to share.

  • A panoramic view of the snow-laden alps above the autumnally beautiful forests near Interlaken in Switzerland.

  • Shots from a day trip to the small, local alpine ski resort of Melchsee Frutt in canton Obwalden.

  • A panoramic view of Lac Léman from the top floor of the Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic in Montreux.

  • Mist rising from the lake during the early morning in Brienz, Switzerland. Photograph taken in 2005.

  • Männlichen in summer

    Gallery of photos from Männlichen, an alpine plateau high above Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen in the Jungfrau Region of Switzerland.

  • Funky Kitchen Club

    Funky Kitchen Club is a Swiss television series, produced in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland by Mountain Multi Media in association with ProSieben Switzerland.
