So, it was my last few days in Switzerland before I set off to Berlin, Germany. For me, it was the perfect chance to visit my hometown for one last time and also mess around with my new camera, a Canon 700D and Brendan’s Sigma 10-20mm super wide-angle lens. Luckily, after the horrible rain in Amsterdam, the weather in Lucerne was beautiful as well as warm and the Määs, the annual autumn fair, happened to be in town. This combination provided me with some beautiful shots.

I haven’t been able to pick up a proper tripod yet. They are just too expensive in Switzerland and I’ll have to wait till I’m in one of the cheaper countries to the east. Therefore all the shots were taken with a small gorilla pod. It was tricky and what made it more difficult was, that most of these photos were taken on some bridge or another. I hadn’t noticed it before, but the mix of heavy traffic and people banging against the railings made those bridges quite shaky. Hey, but a challenge makes it more fun, right?

Enjoy the results!

      You definitely have to go visit Lucerne, especially since everything in Switzerland is so close together and it will probably be a shortish trip for you! Where in Switzerland are you based? I may be a bit biased since I grew up there, but it really is one of the most beautiful cities ever. And I’m glad you liked the photos 🙂
