Stars Over Brüschstockhügel

Star Gazing Selfie from Mount Brüschstockhügel

View over Lake Wägitalersee. This outing was to be my first serious attempt at photographing the Milky Way. My youngest daughter and I drove from our home to nearby Mount Brüschstockhügel (1488m) in Canton Schwyz. We hiked up to the peak and settled into camp as low thin clouds slowly started to contaminate the previously crystal clear Swiss mountain sky. So ended my first quest. No worries, it was great practice, and pics would have simply been an added bonus anyway to ‘hangin and camping in the mountains with one of your kids!

 

 


Three Trees in Binz

Early spring in Binz, a small town on the eastern face of the Pfannenstiel mountain ridge in Canton Zürich.  The new Sony is living up to the hype.

 


Falls on the Tobelweb

Beautiful series of falls on the nearby Tobelweg that leads from my ‘hood down to Küsnacht on Lake Zürich.  This is from one of my first outings with the new Sony A7R II last winter.  Still trying to get accustomed to the camera and the huge jump in technology since my last camera.
