Visits to the Val Verzasca and Arolla

3rd June 2017 : Following the trip to Ispra for the talk and exhibition, I visited the Val Maggia and Val Verzasca in Tessin, Italy with Monique. We had first been there together 20 years ago.   It has to be one of the most spectacular places for taking pictures of water and rocks anywhere.  The colours of both are wonderful, and even better in juxtaposition.  Snowmelt was still in progress and the river was higher than it has been in previous visits.   This time we also had the opportunity to walk all the way down the valley from Sonogno to Lavertezzo (about 13 km), which has to be one of the most spectacular (low level) walks in Europe.   Will have to wait to see the results of the film, but I have chosen one digital image from the day below.  More images have been posted on the  Latest Work page

Later I was able to visit Arolla, high in the Val d’Hérens – another opportunity for some water pictures but with quite different colours, textures and character, and mixtures of shade and light. I was travelling light so only digital (Fuji X) images were taken. More on the  Latest Work page
