From summer to winter…

It’s been a while since my last post here – so the change from the summery photos in the last post to this, may seem a bit abrupt ;) The last six months have been busy for me though, and while I have been able to get out with the camera, I’ve rarely been able to get enough good shots to warrant a complete post.

With winter having arrived in Switzerland though, and a couple of Saturdays to spare, my girlfriend and I decided to head out for a bit of hiking in the snow. We opted for the “easy” solution, and went for prepared hiking trails without deep snow, where you can go without any fancy equipment. Instead, we brought along the cameras!

First trip was to the western part of Graubünden, where we hiked from Mundaun to Lumnezia. The weather forecast had looked a bit suspicious, but it turned out much better than we could have hoped for. Blue skies most of the time, and the clouds that we had, mostly just served to make the photos better – so except for some slightly lacking signalization of the hiking trail at times (giving us an hour of extra hiking down ski pistes and deep snow), all was good!

Next trip went to the Toggenburg area. The weather was even better, the path better marked, and absolutely wonderful. Through forests, large patches of untouched snow, and with clouds rolling in for the sunlight to play in, and all the time majestic mountain vistas on both sides. Couldn’t have been much better!
