In the Swiss Alps

In the Swiss Alps

A few weeks ago (early June)s, me and my family went on an Europe trip to visit Switzerland, my home country. I was very much looking forward to that after a long winter and spring with many hours spent in the studio and too little time spent outside. 

We spent a couple of days in the beautiful Seealpsee, in the Swiss canton of Appenzell. Seealpsee is close to the Santis, one of Switzerland’s more famous well known mountains.

I have visited this lake area many times before and continue to be amazed by its stunning and pure beauty. 

The lake can only be reached by foot, we came from a small town called Wasserauen, an hour long and very steep hike up the mountain. 

Not having done any landscape photography for almost two months or so, it was so much fun for me to go out and shoot some landscapes. Below is some of the material from those two days.

I only brought one camera with one lens (a 35mm). This minimalistic approach enabled me to travel light, to not worry about gear, and to just enjoy the photography.
