Photo of the Week

Tucked away in the Alps, above the familiar town of Grindelwld, Switzerland, is the wonderful Burghaus Bort.  Open nearly the entire year, they are hosts to hikers, tourists, and at this time of year skiers.  For more information check out a full write up on Burghaus Bort here. This photo was taken on a snowy December evening, a cozy place to stay for the night, or several nights!

Transmogrify

This incredible, bronze statue sits in a nondescript square in a town outside of Toulouse, France.  The sculpture is the remarkable creation of French artist Bruno Catalano.  His sculptures are detailed and leave a great deal to the imagination, often causing individuals to wonder if the work, or life we pack into our briefcases robs us of the very essence of our humanity?  Catalano’s deep, thought – provoking works of art inspire this weeks photo challenge – transmogrify.

Photo of the Week – Feb. 20th

For the photo of the week, seasons, we highlight the beautiful area of Oeschinensee in the Bernese Oberland.  Just 4km East of Kandersteg, the setting is stunning any time of the year. If you are looking for a charming location to stay with remarkable views, consider Berghotel Oeschinensee.  With a cozy restaurant on site, a stunning outdoor terrace, spacious rooms and plenty of hiking options, this is an area not to miss.
