During my trip to see Bryon and Kellie (www.viewfindercenter.com), it would not of been a full trip to Switzerland without seeing some proper snow. I have many more photographs coming soon of my whole trip with all the shoots and info regarding the Tuscany workshops, the Zurich based Viewfinder workshops next year and some other details. But , for now I can show you this amazing photograph that I took while at the top of Säntis. We all have Lisa to thank for taking me and looking after me in the cold, and yes.. it was cold.
This photo was is a section of a much bigger 20 photo panorama that I have to still stitch together. This is just an 6 photo sample using every second photo or so. The bigger photo will be a higher res and a wider view.
Taken with a Nikon D90 @ 18mm in the cold.
