    Hi guys- haven't visited here in a while, :(, but:

    This summer, I went on vacation in Europe, and while in Switzerland, I visited a beutiful city called Zermatt, later taking a train up high in the mountains.

    The views (and photos) I saw (I took) there were amazing, IMO- and the shots were some of my best this summer.

    Well, here it goes :D More pics can be found athttp://themotec.com/Ole/WEB_Gallery88, but I'm only posting my favorites here.

    In case you are wondering, these are all taken with my Pentax *ist DS2 SLR, using my 15mm K, 20mm FA, 80-320mm FA, and 35-105mm FA lenses.

    Thanks :D

    Landscape photography would have to be my favorite type, as well as macro.

    Lovely views.
    I've only ever been to Switzerland in winter and at the time had always wanted to also for once go in summer. Never did ... and meanwhile some 35 to 30 or so years have passed ... :roll:

    Your photos make me think it IS about time to go there in SUMMER.
