About the Book
I suppose you could say I am biased: As a Swiss, I think Switzerland is one of the most beautiful countries in the world: In a relatively small land, there is an amazingly rich diversity of landscape, culture and language.
This is already my fourth book of images of Switzerland (following on from “Panorama Switzerland”, “Impressions of Switzerland” and “Switzerland - A Different Take”).
For this book, I have returned to presenting more photo-realistic images but I have experimented with some artistic renditions, especially smitten as I am by the “HDR Picture” mode available on my Sony cameras.
Once again, this project has been a great opportunity for me to combine my favourite pastimes of mountain hiking and photography and all photos were shot during 2013 and mostly during July when the weather was extraordinarily good.
I hope you will enjoy this my fourth photographic tour as you explore Switzerland as captured by my cameras. Let the journey commence ...

I spent many years working in reinsurance with a major Lloyd's underwriting group, mainly writing computer systems. More recently, have spent the last eight years working in Cape Town's prisons as a Christian missionary. In that time, the mission has grown to a small team and we also have a farm project now to help ex-prisoners who are serious in changing their lives. I now split my time between working with a church in the east end of London and continuing with prison ministry in both London & Cape Town.
