Exploring Switzerland: Isenthal

0 Permalink

Happy Tuesday! Almost humpday and almost half way through with the week already, again! It’s crazy how fast time flies these days. Two weekends ago we went up to Isenthal for some hiking and stayed at a small cute little chalet (house) up in the mountains. There was basically no network and 4G on the phone was nowhere to be seen – I loved it! Sam’s father rented out the house for a week and we went up and visited him and his girlfriend for a night.

The nature up there is breathtaking and something I can recommend to everyone: especially not being reachable is what I loved – no internet, no problems, haha :) I also enjoyed some me-time with the camera outside; practice makes perfect they say (though I am far from it!).

All photos were shot with the Canon EOS R; RF 15-35MM f2.8L IS USM lens.

Exploring Switzerland: Volketswil, Örmis

Happy Monday! I hope everyone is well and healthy and can somewhat enjoy the quarantine at home, too! We still go out regularly with our dogs so we have the ability to enjoy the warm weather that Switzerland has been showing off with this past weekend. The other day I asked some of my friends / followers (not a large group, but still!) on Instagram whether they had any tips for us regarding where to take the dogs in and around Zurich. After a while, it seems we have walked every path at least twice in our neighborhood and the surrounding 5-10 km.

I also always check out the account from different people on Instagram, including that of Andrea Monica Hug (@andreamonicahug), whom is not just an amazing photographer but also goes for many runs and walks. The other day she went for a walk with her dad to a place that looked absolutley beautiful and one that I really wanted to see. I wrote her asking where this place was and not only did she tell me, but she also sent me a screen shot of google maps to find it easily – thank you so much, Andrea – that was highly appreciated!

My fiancé and dogs loved the walk as much as I did, though, I probably loved it the most (or perhaps second-most after the dogs). I used this time to work on my photography skills a bit again and just enjoy the time with my camera. Here are some of the photos I wanted to share with you. Of course this is after the processing – all done with Lightroom Classic and Lumiar (Skylum Luminar 4 to be precise). What do you think of them?
