Some more images from our recent Switzerland trip.
These were all taken from Männlichen, situated above Wengen, and accessed by a recently refurbished cable car. If you take the cable car from Wengen, grab the opportunity to go upstairs to the external viewing gallery! Feel the wind in your hair as you make the ascent/descent!
These are the Staubbach Falls in the Lauterbrunnen Valley in Switzerland.
This was taken from the train on the day we left Wengen on our way to Konstanz.
There is a small zig-zag footpath at the base of the falls. That must be a fascinating walk looking up at that cascading water!
Another image from our recent trip to Cornwall, deep in the south west!
I thought long and hard about the ‘crop’ I have used in this image. I think it is very nearly all of the image as it came off the camera.
However, many would say there is too much sky, or too much beach in the foreground. Their argument being that neither adds much to the image. But I disagree : those extra elements tell of the space around the harbour; they hint at the light ( something that has attracted artists and photographers for many years ); but more importantly they remind me of the feelings of space, freedom and tranquility that I felt here.
A letterbox crop, showing just the buildings, the pier and the lighthouse, would have destroyed all of that. Only my opinion, of course!!
With a group of friends from the photography club, I went to Wicken Fen yesterday for a morning of fun and photography – and coffee and sausage rolls, of course.
Wicken Fen is a National Trust property on the Cambridgeshire Fens. A superb place to visit – lots to see, lots to photograph.
These are three of my images from the visit. All taken on the Olympus EM-1 Mk II; the lichen shot is a ( 60mm )macro shot
