Grindelwalds, Lake Bachalpsee

Grindelwalds, Lake Bachalpsee

Probably my favorite location of the year, Switzerland's Lake Bachalpsee, It doesn't look much on the approach to it but when you get down to it and use the lake's reflections you can get some amazing images.

Ponte dei salti

Ponte dei salti

The unique Ponte dei salti Roman bridge lies in Switzerland not far from the Italian border.

The water here is a stunning Teal blue, the colours in this image are not boosted and are natural to the scene. This is a very busy tourist location and despite a number of people walking on the bridge a 16min long exposure removed them from the scene

The Colosseum in Rome

The Colosseum in Rome

Rome's Roman Colosseum is a must visit, the stunning architecture that is so old but still stands today is a testament to building abilities of the Romans.

Rome is like many capitals and is very busy with tourists, hence i used a long exposure to add some movement to the sky and the people in the scene, which I feel gives the image a sence of time and movement which goes hand in hand with the age of the colosseum
