  • Obersaxen II – perfect night sky found!

    Obersaxen is a small village in Graubinden (Switzerland), mostly known for the ski resorts and hiking. For me, it is one of the very few places in very urbanised Switzerland which still has relatively low light pollution. This was already a second time when we went to Obersaxen for the night sky gazing and Perseid…
  • Schaffhausen and falls

    Summer was quite busy, and we were travelling quite a lot. One of our trips was to the place I have already visited some time ago with my parents - Rheinfalls. Rheinfalls are one of the most popular places in Switzerland with thousands of visitors every day. We planned our trip from Zurich and took the…
  • Rainy and Cloudy Mythen

    Almost every weekend, when the weather is reasonably good we are trying to go somewhere. Sometimes it's hard to predict in the morning what will be the weather in the afternoon 50 km away from Zurich in the mountains. This was one of those days - the forecast was quite ok so we risked and…
  • Zurich Christmas market and lightshow

    Last year we didn't attend many Christmas market events, however, we were told about the light festival (Illuminarium - Yuki ist da) which took place in Landesmuseum Zürich. The show itself was rather ok - music and animated story behind it  and the laser show for the finale. The surrounding though, was much more interesting.…
  • Obersaxen – looking for the perfect black sky

    Last adventure took us to Obersaxen, Graubünden. The idea was to spend a night in the Alpine hut and enjoy the Perseid's Meteor Shower. Obersaxen is situated in a valley and basing on Light Pollution Map, it is one of the very few places in Switzerland where light pollution is minimal. As always, I took…
  • Walensee and Weesen hike

    Few weeks ago we wanted to go somewhere for a hike but possibly close to lake. Because Zurich lake is almost fully urbanised and there are very few real hiking routs we chose to go to the next bigger lake - Walensee. It was already our third hike in the Walensee area but this time…
  • Bern Adventure

    Last Photo Adventures took me to Munsingen and Bern. The main point of the trip on Sunday was to visit Photo Munsingen, the biggest photo exhibition/meeting in Switzerland. I was also curious how other panels look like and we were lucky to still see some photo exhibitions. Among many different topics like Japanese winter, act pictures,…
  • Hiking day in Filzbach

    For a long time we wanted to visit Filzbach and mountains in the neighborhood because of the excellent view on the Walensee and Walenstadt and a cable-car which allows to start hiking already at the decent height. It is also good to mention that it takes only 1h to get there from Zurich HB. We took…
  • Ruetihof trip – year after Dandelion

    Two weeks ago I finally had some time to play with the camera, IR filter and new Macro lens Nikkor 105 mm f/2.8D MICRO. I took my equipment, tripod with new ball head and just hoped for something interesting to find. What I noticed is that my HOYA Infrared filter 720 nm behaves much better…
