Driving off-piste

Jo and I took a drive up to Grindelwald last night to take some moonlit landscape photos.

Another step into the archives; this time from when Jo and I visited the Piz Gloria revolving restaurant atop the Schilthorn, high above Mürren. The mountain peak next to the viewing platform is open to the public in suitable weather conditions, forming both a starting point for a precipitous ski run in winter and a […]
