The Findelbach washes it – watercolour most literal.

And the mountain stirs storms above it.

Hard to believe, all this in three nights. I didn’t even know that I was going to Switzerland until less than 24 hours before I boarded the flight. But life does that sometimes.

This land is art. And it has made an impression on me.

That is what great art is supposed to do.

    1. Thanks Darko. The Findelbach Falls were pretty dizzying, not just in their volume and height but the fact that there’s a bridge over their gorge carrying the Gornergrat cog railway! But, Swiss engineers seem to know what they’re doing, no matter how challenging the land is.


    1. Yes – and thinking about it, so often the word ‘impressive’ is used for things that do not make a lasting impression. It is safe to say that the Mattertal has, not only on me but on generations of visitors there πŸ™‚
