Filming and photographing at the mountain-top restaurant made famous by James Bond.
Taking a little too much air to take things off my mind.
My second “vlog”, from Flims in Graubünden.
Obstinacy got me past a viewpoint I had aimed for and gave me the opportunity to capture a wonderfully dramatic alternative image.
It’s wonderful to find a new, photographically perfect viewpoint in a place I know so well. (Of course, on a day when I only had my smartphone with me.) Expect to see more shots from this spot in Grindelwald!…
Finding a magnificent view of a scene I know well, by going up a little road and turning a corner.
A great spot to photograph the vineyards and sixteenth-century church at Ligerz, on the shores of Lake Biel.
I’m certainly no stranger to long-exposure photography. But during the few years that we’ve lived in a flat with a balcony and an unobstructed view of the night sky, I’ve come to realize that I’d never photographed the Milky Way properly. The first time that I can even remember seeing the Milky Way at all was when we were in…
The shore of Lake Thun at Gwatt is a great place to photograph the sunrise and the sunset.
A thousand-year-old castle on the lake shore near Thun, with wonderful gardens, terrific views, and a hideously ugly restaurant.
A picturesque village set in a rolling landscape, whose name is perhaps more often associated with a nearby motorway tunnel.
Searching for viewpoints, poring over maps, dodging power lines, and coming home with classic landscape images.
When finding a great view, most photographers will raise their camera and take a picture. By finding the best viewpoint, most photos can be improved.
Better lighting conditions can make a good landscape photograph great. Being in the right place at the right time is a skill which you can learn.
The picturesque and history-rich town of Laufenburg straddles the river Rhine: one half being in Switzerland, the other in Germany.
Information and tips for photographing the large Rhine waterfalls at Neuhausen, near the northern border of Switzerland.
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.
The Gurten Hill (or Güsche in local dialect) stands adjacent to the south western edge of Switzerland’s federal capital: Bern. It’s a park, conference venue, hotel, restaurant, model railway, playground, viewpoint, music festival venue and beloved free-time destination, not just for Bern locals, but also to many other visitors looking for a break from the city. (The linked film is by…
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 above the entrance to the…
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 streets for fitness, going shopping, or…
