Some Swiss Holiday Memories, February 2013.....a sample from 300 Taken!

 
 

Happy to be out for a walk with family.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rushing River with tree icicles
 
 
 
 


 
 
 
Outside a mountain restaurant.

 

Lovely walk near family home.

Over the bridge and walk home on the other side of the river.

Another walk, high up in the mountains.

On the shady side of the mountain.

Two weeks after arrival and signs of spring....but only on the sunny side of the mountains.

...and on a less sunny side....little church.

 

The river was flowing really fast.

The oldest house in the valley....it looks so magical with the unusual spire 300-400 years and can never be sold.

The side of a local barn.

Art on the shore of Lake Lucerne.

Natures own artwork.

Natural art, outside a little shop in Stans.

The side of a private building in Stans, in what seemed to be an artist's area, but all vas very quiet.....it is hard to tell in these little towns just what are shops, and what are homes...they are not at all like our shops.....almost secretive and understated.

How gorgeous Ellen, what a fabulous holiday Ellen, the shops are brilliant I notice that as well in France, that the shop fronts have a gentle modesty... not like our own flashing frights xxx

I like that last picture of the building with the vines. So much texture there!

Thank you for your comment.....that vine on the building is one of my favourite images.
