Let us love winter, for it is the spring of genius. ~ Pietro Aretino

It’s been a while since I last posted. I have been enjoying the Winter season with family and friends in the past few weeks and spent a lot of time outdoors for shooting as well. Been doing that on snow shoes a lot: a terrific way to get to places you would otherwise not discover!

The winter image above was shot during a hike near Villars-Sur-Ollon in Switzerland, close to the Col de la Croix in the canton of Vaud. It features an alpine meadow in winter time with snow-covered pine trees and two typical Swiss barns. In the background you see a mountain called the Grand Muveran (3051m).
