The end of the road trip at Sustenpass (CH), a new beginning to catch in 2014 ?

Still some mountain road to climb …

… the last bends before reaching the last pass of the tour, the Sustenpass.

Time for a walk towards the last glacier, at the base of Sustenjoch …

… and when the alpine path gets too long, the zoom comes to help.

And after the best raclette ever at the Berggasthaus Sustenpass Hospiz, time to drive down, back to the valley, back to Zurich

Winter snow and ice and wind will keep Furka, Grimsel and Sustenpass closed … until the next Spring. See you there in 2014 ?

This is how sun sets in Switzerland

Despite the sun still high,

It is time for setting head to a safe harbour.

All the shades of green and blue that adorned the day

rapidly turn into black and white on the lake surface,

and pay a visit there, where this country was born on August 1, 1291.

… and only by then the first fires are started to fight the long, Alpine night.

The mountain trail of the five-likes: pure Swissness in Pizol (Glarus)

If you have a long weekend to spend in Zurich and you are curious to hike on Alps, don’t miss the classic hike of the 5 lakes in Pizol. It is just a 90-minute car drive off Zurich. Here below the second lake.

Via an easy trail you reach the third lake..

Amazing panoramas bring you to the fourth lake…

Five hour-long hike for five different lakes, where else?

Where is the 1st lake? Time to hike up to Pizol and find it!

There’s a starman waiting in the sky of Zurich, his name is Mr. Bügler!

Between the two tallest towers of Zurich …

… there’s a starman waiting in the sky! Mr. Bügler told us not to blow it, cause he knows it’s all worthwhile…

… and then he walked for 230 meters on a rope and crossed the Limmat river. Click on the picture panel to magnify!

It’s raining men in Zurich! Capture them in DX mode at 5 fps with your D800!

After a long drought period, it started raining men in Zurich.

Please appreciate the DX mode of the D800 which pushes this full frame camera to the warp speed of 5 fps ! Although not impressing, it is still enough for shooting some cool acrobatic jumps into Zurich lake! The middle guy is parachuting with the flag of Zurich.

C.I.O.F.F. in Zurich: folklore from all over the world at Zuerifaescht 2013

C.I.O.F.F. activities are great opportunities for Zurich to know the multicultural communities living in the city. Can you distinguish Mexicans, Russians, Greeks and Poles while performing on stage?

Not only kids are dancing on stage, but they are often the funniest side of the show.

I shot these pictures the last time C.I.O.F.F. performed at Zuerich Faescht 2013. I love the multicultural density in Zurich and these performances are a great opportunity to know traditions from all over the world.
