The photography bug didn’t leave

So for those of you who wondered why the blog got so quiet lately, it is not because I lost the photography bug or felt off the edge of the world. It is simply that I was very busy and the photos I have taken in the last couple of months were pictures of family and friends. And I hope you understand that I don’t put these on the internet 🙂

But now you can cheer up, I have a couple of days off and I plan to spend them going to the sunny southern part of Switzerland and spend them taking pictures. Lots of pictures. And if the bug is still in my blood, there might even be some worth showing off 🙂

So, I wish you all a nice time, lots of laughters and a good time!

Oh, and for those who wonder where this lovely mountain is located – Just head over to Switzerland and then visit the small village of Wildhaus. A marvelous place of earth and an area I used to live for a couple of years.

Landscape of Kyrgyzstan

I won’t write much about it. I’m not a poet and therefore, I decided to let the pictures speak. (as always, click on the picture to get it full screen)

Enjoy 🙂

Last Pass. It's with a sad heart we look back at the last mountain pass of the tour we just crossed.

Tall mountains We're at 3000m above sea level here on our way to the Tosor Pass.  I don't know how high the mountains are, but definitely higher than 4000m

Winter is here

I know, you didn’t find a new post when you visited this place last weekend.  But you know, I just didn’t have time to do a post, as we got snow!!!!!!!!

It wasn’t massive, but enough to make me grab my old M3, load a roll of film and put on my snow shoes.  And as it was a saturday and everybody is lazy, I even  managed to be the first one on the trail and lay some fresh tracks. Oh joy, oh joy 🙂

As much as I hate Winter down here where I live my every day life, as much I adore it up in the mountains with fresh snow.  It just looks so pretty, is so quiet and brings back all these cool childhood memories of playing in that white fluffy stuff.

And here you go, that’s the reason why I failed to do a post last weekend.  I know I should feel a bit sorry but you know what?

I don’t 🙂

Oh, and there is no before / after this time.  This is film – it just looks good, no post work needed 😉
