Cinque Terre

I have spent a few days in the beautiful Cinque Terre Area (located in Liguria, Italy).

It is an area of rugged landscapes, with hills falling directly in the sea. On the hills, terraces were built to allow some agricultural activities. Quite a part of the area is covered with vineyards, but there are also many other trees, including olives, lemon, cherries to name a few.

The five villages of the region are Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

The hiking trails are well maintained but quite steep. Be prepared to climb and descend step after step...

Fall in Sixt

I have added a few pictures of the fall landscapes found around Sixt-Fer-à-Cheval, France. Tree colors are very strong this year, ensuring beautiful views.




Back from Africa, I did a hike around the Creux-du-Van. It is a very interesting rock formation located close to Neuchâtel. And to stay in the safari mood, I saw an Ibex up there...


Charmey and around

A few weeks ago, I’ve spent a very nice weekend in the Fribourg Alps. It is a beautiful region, with the “Château de Gruyères” at its heart. We’ve done a little bit of hiking and climbed to the top of the cable car in Charmey. More pictures here...

I’ve also added a few flower pictures in the macro gallery...
