These pictures were taken in Switzerland; the top one from one of those great big chair lifts…
…and this is No 1 son and his friends skimming across the snow (I was far too nervous to try it). I love that the snow almost looks like surf. These photos were taken in summer, so even though the snow is cold, it was sunny. As you get higher and higher you start to slow down and find it harder to breathe; but the views are outstanding. And yes, you do get that mountain high.
I had to force myself to go up these mountains to take these shots. I’m very glad I did.
*This is my entry for The Gallery and the theme this week is ‘landscapes.’
