It is actually supposedly the location that inspired Tolkien's Rivendell. Tolkien toured Switzerland as a young man and there are in fact several items in his works of Swiss inspiration.
I didn't know that, but I can definitely see the Rivendell parallel in that Lauterbrunnen view.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

I thought as much... horrible road in winter especially when you're going down the hill, it's pitch dark and pouring with rain and the temperature is hovering around zero.

This is some forgotten corner of Middle Earth. Or it might just be Lauterbrunnen.
God, I love this country. Brilliant photo and a wonderful picture- just beautiful.

Well, there's nothing important in this picture, but somehow I find it peaceful and relaxing.

Where is the second one... is that the motorway viaduct at Valangin going down towards Neuchâtel ? Very nasty in icy weather...
I can imagine! I recognised it too, I feel happy to get my bearings here now! At first every road looked very similar....

True! La Chaux de fonds is so icy! I had to push a pushchair on pure ice the other week to get to my school (quite high up in the city... Crampons, as I have been told are only for those over 65... but I disagree!

They are truly impressive.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Three more postcards (not dated). They are probably from around 1970 - 1975.

Chillon (Montreux). Lucerne. Geneva.

Went to Zurich on Friday armed with my new book "Understanding exposure" (thanks begga) and gave some of the ideas a go.
