Week 28: IWC Clock Museum

I visited the IWC clock museum in Schaffhausen / Switzerland last Wednesday.

(1) First digital pocket watch made in 1888. Three years later IWC took it out of production. Reason: You've should not read the time, but experience it.

Week 30: In the meadows

I had an adventure of a lifetime...
Going out to shoot dragonflies I realized a meadow full of butterflies. It must have been 200 to 300 hundred.
Mainly Swallowtails and Foxes that are very rare in my region.

(1) The meadow

Everytime a car rolled by (which was rare) the whole swarm flew up and settled down after a short time.
I'm still fascinated...

29 - that expression in the first photo... :D Another winning set.

30 - nice butterfly captures - how fortunate to wander into a swarm like that.

Week 31: Top of Germany

We have visited the highest mountain in Germany - the Zugspitze.
The summit is 2962m high - aprox. 9000ft.

(1) We went up with a cog railroad and the last part with a smaller (normal size) cablecar.

We went down with the new gigantic cable car. The exciting thing - it has a glass bottom...

The summit is a tourist trap, but worth visiting it once in a lifetime.

Enjoy

Week 32: Skywalk

Last weekend we visited the city of Scheidegg. There's an interesting place called "Skywalk" or "Tree Top Walk".

(1) Aproaching the walk

All pictures were shot in the golden hour against the light.
This old Russian lens still rocks.
