BLAUSEE, SWITZERLAND

I have been postponing the trip to Blausee, Switzerland since I arrived in Geneva in 2009.A little background, Blausee is a small lake near Kandersteg, Switzerland. What makes this lake so breathtakingly beautiful is its crystal clear blue water. You can actually see the the bottom of the lake from the surface.Since the weather was not so great (cloudy and drizzling) when I took these pics, I do hope I did just enough to capture its beauty and spirit.Definitely worth... continue reading

Chillon Castle in Switzerland now a Trade Mark

The Swiss press announced today that Chillon Castle, known by anglo-saxons because of the "Prisoner of Chillon" book by Lord Byron, and Switzerland's most visited monument, has now become a Trade Mark.What is interesting, is that it's not just the name "Château de Chillon" (and I guess its translation into a number of languages) that is protected, but also two particular "graphical representations" of the castle: when viewed from the Montreux side and when viewed from the Villeneuve side.... continue reading

One shot from last year

Recently I got the MR for the shown image. My friend and I were mountaineering in the Bernese Highlands in Switzerland. This shot was done about 150 meters away from the summit of Monch, a 4000-meter-peak, we are standing on the last ridge to summit, that was 40 to 30 cm wide and partly even narrower, on every side of the ridge the face was falling down several hundred dizzying meters.
