Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

What looks like a WWII-era pillbox overlooking the Vierwaldstättersee. I noticed it for the first time today, after cycling past it on my way home from work who-knows-how-many times.

There are apparently quite a lot of leftover fortifications in the area. The museum at the Winkelriedhaus had a nice exhibit a year or so ago about all of it. Also, I haven't yet been but Festung Fuerigen (on the road to Kehrsiten) is worth a visit. You can also see the Toblerone's on the road out to Ennetmoos-Kerns. The hills between there and Alpnach also are loaded with old bunkers, fortifications, etc.,.. I suppose that it could have held off the Nazis for a few days at least.

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Just a photo I took with my phone camera last Wednesday at the Tibetan Institute in Rikon, where the Tibetan New Year was celebrated. It shows an offering table. There were lots of people wearing beautiful traditional costumes and the monks were chanting beautifully.

Commuting by bike is so much better than back home...

Today, at Aegerisee. Blue sky, frozen lake, dry roads. Lovely.

The scenery looks pretty good, but I like the look of the bike even more. Your commute must be fun!

Re: Post Your Photos From Switzerland!

Took a walk by the lake last weekend to to dust off the camera ready for this year. I always find fast moving gulls close up a great way to get my eye back in as well.











In truth I should have compensated the exposure by around +2/3 to +1 stop due to the clouds, but hey, the camera still works after being stuck in cupboard for 4 months
