    Default Switzerland Series 1: Mountainscapes....

    I went up to Uetliberg in Zurich and was rewarded with marvelous views of mountains towards the south (?).... weather wasn't good, if not I could get a much better view of the lower lands....









    these were taken using a Fujifilm S602Z, some with the Olympus B300 attached to take close-up pics of the peaks.

    Any comments are welcome!

    I think they are mountains in the Jungfrau area.... the Alps are further south and probably not visible from Zurich.

    Food is pretty expensive but manageable if you could survive on bread A decent meal could easily cost over S$20. Accomodation could be cheap depending on the place. Transport (via trains) could be expensive especially if you intent to venture up the higher mountains. But the views would be great! I might revisit the place next time. Had encountered bad weather (mist and rain) in Basel, Luzern and Zurich.

    Recently, I did saw some arranged tours of less than $2k for a 8-9 day trip.

    Nice scenery ; Btw, I think the effect would have been much more breath-taking if you had taken panoramic shots instead. Honestly, I feel kinda constricted viewing these majestic mountains within such a range.

    hmm... thanks for the idea. I would see if I could work something out. there're some trees blocking the view and I didn't want to climb up the 30m observation post in the wind

    did some manual combination of 2 pics.... it's my first try and it's not perfect yet.... (tried pixaround and it didn't work too well with the 2 images).

    imaginary_number, how do you find this "panoramic" shot?

    Thanks canturn. What software did you use to stitch up the pics?

    I'm hoping my slides fare better in capturing the mountains

    The panoramic pic sure looks a lot more impressive than the first few although the stitching wasn't exactly seamless...

    canturn's stitching made it look a lot better though
