While driving through the countryside between Burgdorf and Affoltern in Emmental …
… the full Bernese Oberland panorama unfolded in front of us.
Jungfrau, Eiger and Mönch and a handful of more than 3,000 meter-high peaks.
Enjoy the Bernese farmland crowned with its world famous mountains
and spotted with forests and towns.
Click each picture to enlarge and feel the smell of pumpkins and chestnuts!
Pictures and panorama shot with D800 + 70-200 mm f/2.8 and assembled with Hugin.
The first picture series is from the gorge west side, where you have to slip through a 2 meter-wide crack in the stone.
The walk is perfect in summer, when the sun is high and light comes into the gorge revealing all the colours of stones and water. After some hundred meters and a few tunnels the gorge opens.
This gorge in summer is also a very convenient place to escape heatwave. You can reach your starting point by train or on foot the other way back.
