Eternal search for the perfect angle

Searching for viewpoints, poring over maps, dodging power lines, and coming home with classic landscape images.

Puidoux, Switzerland

The views from the immense vineyards along the northern shore of Lac LĂ©man (Lake Geneva) are pretty spectacular, no matter what time of day. At dusk, in early summer, the lights of the town of Vevey and Montreux twinkle in the distance, while the lanes amongst the vines are all but deserted.

Images Festival in Vevey

The Images Festival of Visual Arts is the only open air photographic festival in Switzerland, which takes place in the picturesque town of Vevey, on the shores of Lake Geneva, every two years.
