Switzerland Landscapes

I have now been to Switzerland at least three times and yet every time I go, I can’t seem to take less than 2500 photos. It will take me several more months to go through the 5000 photos and counting that I have, but I am making good progress. Switzerland is truly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Even during the winter when the sky is cloudy, the vast snow-covered landscapes are breathtaking. I plan to go back many more times. Switzerland is central to Germany, France and Italy, so it makes it convenient to travel to other great cities throughout Europe. While in Switzerland during 2008 we visited several cities bordering Switzerland and Italy. The shot of the door you see below was taken in a small town known as Lugano which sits in the south of Switzerland in the canton of Ticino.

Throughout Switzerland there are many great castles and fortresses. Some of these castles date back hundreds of years. In the shot you see below, the overcast, rainy whether provided the perfect mood and backdrop for the castle walls. Two exposures were taken and then combined in Photoshop to get the perfect balance of light in the foreground and background.
