Best of… Photos

Over the past 11 years living abroad, raising two children, stoking the fire of travel, wandering the Alps, and then some, we’ve accumulated a few photos of our travels.  We hope you enjoy them, and if you are curious where we’ve been… click the link and all the best from More2Explore.

Urbex anyone?  This was an interesting visit to the sanitarium.  Even though the light was intense, the boarded up windows still allowed many variances of lighting throughout the building.  This was a memorable photo shoot!  More to come.

Early morning; possibly everyone is still sleeping. The light outside is reflecting the surrounding mountains off the lake at the end of the valley.  Instead of waking everyone up to get my camera which is buried under a pile of clothes, I leave with just my phone.  There is a soothing calm outside.  No wind, it is a brisk chilly spring morning.  I sit on the edge of the lake actually enjoying the moment, despite other photographers jockeying for the key spots, tripoding their gear all over the place.  I felt in the moment and not pressured to get ‘the shot’.  Although, in that fluid moment of enjoyment, I remained programmed to snap a few pics.  Below is one which captured the moment the best, the spring can be seen by the excess of pollen along the strands on the lake edge, matching the boat hulls.


This photo was taken on Seealpsee, in the Appenzell region of Switzerland.

Favorite Place

Can it be that one place, so clearly defines for us, a singular location or meaning that there really is no other? I fear not, but question what is ones interpretation of favorite? What do you mean by place? I have, as I’m sure others do, a collection of favorites each for a different reason: solitude, jaw dropping views, quite, fun, sunset, obscure, creative travel, awesome, fascinating, charitable, etc.

And the other; place… although possible to equate this to a singular GPS datum, perhaps ones “place” is grander than that, a special street, a restaurant, a hike, a cultural experience, a trip with friends, or an entire country! If this is possible, than why not? Here is to our favorite place, Switzerland, for offering us so much for such a small place…
