Off season

Surprisingly no queues at Mythenquai lido!

Quickly through the changing rooms …

… lockers locked …

The lake is just ahead!

For food and refreshments …

… showers …

… and playgrounds …

… we will come back next year.

Pictures shot at the Strandbad Myhtenquai, Zurich, off season, still open for a pleasurable morning stroll. Click to zoom in each picture.


Why golden Autumn in Zurich 2014?

Hypothesis: with warm autumns, plants better remove and recycle the green chlorophyll from their leaves. If chlorophyll is completely removed, carotenoids and anthocyanins are fully visible. So, leaves appear more yellow and red than in cold autumns.
