Zurich and the Limmat on a cloudy day - HDR

Zurich, the river Limmat and church Grossmünster on a cloudy day. Applied some HDR effects.


Scenic road / landscape to Interlaken - Brünig - Lungernersee

This is a suggestion if you want to drive by car from Zurich to Interlaken or Grindelwald.
Instead of taking the highway via Berne I do suggest to take toad via Lucerne and the mountain region of Brünig Pass. On the highway depending on the traffic situation it will take less time. But over the mountains the distance probably is shorter and much more scenic.

You will pass Lucerne and some beautiful lakes with an wonderful landscape.

Bird´s Eye view of Zurich

Last week I took i flight from Zurich to Spain. The weather was nice so I took the chance to take some photos with my mobile phone. Of course it was in flight mode.

On the photos you can see Zurich and the lake of Zurich from bird´s eyes view.
The quality of the photo is not so good because the camera of the mobile phone is not to compare with a professional camera as well the plane was vibrating at bit and of course the plane window was in between.

Zoomed when taking the photo -  Zurich and it´s lake.





Sunset at the Bellevue / Sechseläutenplatz in Zurich

The Bellevue in Zurich / Switzerland is a crowded place just at the lake where a lot of Tram lines will stop. The train station "Stadelhofen" is also close.

So it's very busy almost all the time. Last year the Sechseläutenplatz, just over the street from Bellevue, was renovated. The whole place is now made of granite. Very beautiful to take a rest there.
