This shot of the epically beautiful Matterhorn was taken while hiking the 5-Seenweg (Five Lakes Hike), which offers 5 stunning lake views of the alps and is a true Swiss classic.

Grossmünster Church, Zürich.

Grossmünster

The Grossmünster church is a Romanesque-style Protestant church dating back to the 12th century. The twin towers of the Grossmünster are considered two of Zürich’s most recognized landmarks. Construction began around 1100 and the church was inaugurated around 1220. According to legend, the Grossmünster was founded by Charlemagne, whose horse fell to its knees over the tombs of Felix and Regula, Zürich’s two patron saints. Charlemagne thus had a church built as a monastery on the spot.

This long exposure shot (~2 min) of the church looks across the Münsterbrücke, a pedestrian and road bridge dating back to 1836 which spans the Limmat river.

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.
