This and that ;-)

This very old Engadinian house was recently beautifully renovated. I think it is worth to be shown in this place, although I used another camera for this picture. I first used the GR III but the result was unsatisfactory because the 28mm was not wide enough and the facade was still in shadow in the morning. That's why I used my beloved 24mm lens and went back in the evening... It is just one of the pearls of Guarda. Click here to take a closer look at "my" village and/or go here to see the rest of this series.

This house is about 300-400 years old and was last renovated 90 years ago. Now, inside it is top modern, while the exterior has remained largely as it was before. But it shines in new splendor.

A comparison is certainly interesting and this example shows why I like to fall back on my FF equipment when necessary.

Because the terrain is a bit sloping, I had to hold the camera more obliquely at 28mm which led to more distortions and there is too little space around the house for perspective corrections. I also like it less when the subject fills the frame to the edge. The light was also nicer in the evening, of course.

But now we are fully back in the realm of the GR III. All the following photos were taken with it

Another visit to my beloved Clozza

Wild, clean mountain streams have pleased me since my childhood. And today, access to clean, clear water is a privilege for which I am deeply grateful.

The Clozza tempts me again and again to linger and to take some photos. Shortly after this point, the Clozza disappears for some time in a gorge to which I could not yet find a passable access.

It is fascinating to watch the roaring water.

A simple, beautiful and old bridge leads over the Clozza on the way from Guarda to Lavin.

The beautiful view from the bridge.

The last photo of this beautiful day.

Guarda, the village of my choice. I have never regretted moving here!

It's one of those beautiful late summer days! The lonely little cloud has only decorative character.

Some of the latest creations of the potter of Guarda. The cheerful figures now decorate various windowsills and gardens throughout Switzerland and perhaps even the world. Certainly a better alternative to the widely used, boring garden gnomes.

Thanks for looking!

Best wishes from the mountains,
