Switzerland Day 4: Trümmelbachfälle und Stechelberg

Today we went down into the valley to Trümmelbach and Stechelberg.

As we walked through the valley in the morning, the sun was rising over one of the mountainsides and dividing the valley into light and dark.

The mountainside at Trümmelbach has waterfalls flowing down and through it with steps into the mountain for visitor access behind the waterfalls. You really have to shout in this place, what with the roaring thunder of water from all sides! The flash was useless here as the air was full of water droplets that just reflected all the light straight back into the camera. There was plenty of opportunity for some slow shutter speeds and running water effects.

After Trümmelbach, we headed back through the valley to Stechelberg for more wonderful Swiss food! Some nice postcard style photos to be had here; picturesque green fields with cows and wooden buildings, and of course the backdrop of the Alps!

There was also a river running through the valley, so more slow shutter speeds used here! Although, with it being such a sunny day, it was difficult to balance between lots of water flow and not whiting out the photo.

A fantastic sunset tonight, with oranges and reds shining onto the mountain tops.
