Life through the Lens (18 October 2020)

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

I took this photo from the Schwarzsee, right below the Matterhorn. Of that I am sure. We were on a holiday in the Alps, right on the France/Switzerland border, at the end of August. And visiting the Matterhorn was something we just had to do. Little did I realise that I would subsequently “meet” a blogger from the area on here! Lucky so-and-so, to have views like this.

So the camera told me I was on the Schwarzsee, but not the direction in which I was looking. So I spent hours and hours after I got home, even sending back off to Switzerland for high-quality maps of the area. My best guess, including my fading memory, this is a mountain called the Weisshorn (until somebody tells me differently!) Actually this is one of the tallest peaks in the Alps, just topping 4,500m. I love the snow flurries being blown off the side of the mountain, we could not have hoped for a more glorious day!


      • Hello Pete! How are you doing? I hope everything is fine. To be honest, I don’t care anymore whether it’s the mountains or the sea or the countryside, a small change of scenery would be so fun! We’re preparing for the second round of covid, so travel is not in the near future. Although we’ll try to go for a weekend 🙂

        • Hi Kacha. Second wave well andtruly underway gere, more infectious than the first but apparently less deadly. Scientists recommended another fixed-length lockdown to ease the numbers, but BoJo refused. Applying for jobs but at the same time, not wanting to go out! Discovered how to make videos (see last post)!
