About the Book
In Switzerland, A Photographic Journey, photographer Les Rhoades tempts the reader with magnificent photographs to expose Switzerland’s hidden treasures. If you have never visited the country of Switzerland or are looking for memories to last forever...turn the pages and immerse yourself in the enchanting photos that follow.
In this book you will experience luscious full-color photographs featuring alpine views, magnificent landscapes, and cultural highlights that tell the true story of Switzerland. There is also accompanying text to explain the locations and specifics of the photographs. The refreshing perspective presented is certainly not the one that most visitors would see. The casting of Swiss Bells, rushing waterfalls high in the mountains, fishing on a quiet river, all may go unnoticed by the casual tour driven visit, but not so with Rhoades. He ensures that the reader experiences 'his' Switzerland, providing a very personal touch that transports you right there.
