CH01: Confederation Helvetica

Having been away for a while, I am back now, with some new content. 

 

Switzerland or Schweiz [German], Suisse [French], Svizzera [Italian], Svizra [Romansh] and Confederation Helvetica [Latin]. Judging from the time taken to sort all the photos that I have, this could be another interminably long series.

You do some very varied series, Ayush, so I will look forward
Ayush Basu: Lots of places to visit and not enough time [and money, I may add] to spare tongue
you started it off with a spectacular panorama Ayush... i will love following along with you on this journey....petersmile
Ayush Basu: I think it was easy for me. In fact wherever I turned, my finger would tend to fire off a few shots.
That is a very promising start to the series.
Ayush Basu: Thank you Michael, I aim to please smile

I look forward to lots of pics of one of my favourite places
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the comment Aussie smile
What a great view, Ayush. Switzerland is one of my favourite countries and Geneva is just the most wonderful place.
Ayush Basu: Sadly Geneva won't feature here as I did not go there, but hopefully you can find some other places you can relate to?

Firstly, glad to see you back Ayush, secondly, I hope it wasn't prison. I like a long series Ayush, but then you might have noticed.
Ayush Basu: grin It was a pleasant trip to CH, in good company and in some ways it was what I had expected (my childhood memories of the book, Heidi). In some ways I was not so prepared; the stench of cow dung and multitude of flies tongue Not that I am complaining, mind you
I am home today for the first time too and haven't started to take my files off the cards yet. I look forward to seeing Switzerland through your eyes.
Ayush Basu: Thank you kindly Mary. Then I'll stay tuned to your page for your files as and when you're done transferring.

Switzerland has always been a favourite of mine but not been for years now. I'll be happy to have a long series.
Ayush Basu: It was my first trip and has become a favourite of mine too. I hope I can keep you engaged in this series then
A super shot to start the series, Ayush. Did you practice your yodeling at this spectacular location?
Ayush Basu: grin No, but I heard a lot of cow bells (another sound typically associated with these landscapes).
I look forward to this series Ayush, I have travelled through, but never actually been to Switzerland. You are certainly a well travelled man.
Ayush Basu: I should credit some circumstances in personal and professional life that have enabled much of this travel. But I do not have much of a "healthy" bank balance, to take note of.
Great view, Ayush,are the markings on the mountain something to do with avalanche protection?
Ayush Basu: I am not certain Frank, I have wondered myself. Than you for the visit
Beautiful photographs, Switzerland it is a beautiful place, for cyclists it is almost a paradisesmile I am greeting
Ayush Basu: Quite right you are. Very convenient and convenience of cyclists is borne in mind. Thank you for the comment

Zwitserland (Dutch)
Great shot with the flag, I was one time in Adelboden.
Wonderful country and smart not having the €€€€€€ euro...
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the addition grin and very enlightening for me because I would otherwise have mistakenly assumed the Dutch version is very close to the German one. I did not visit Adelboden but I guess it would be a beautiful place as well.
Excellent shot, Ayush - Switzerland certainly has the scenery to sustain a series!
Ayush Basu: I certainly had my work cut out in taking these snaps, Tom.
A wonderful start Ayush, I shall look forward to this series.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the comment Sally smile

It looks like they have concerns about landslides here, Ayush?
Ayush Basu: I have thought about that myself and if that is indeed the purpose, then I am glad to see pro-active steps being taken.

A great composition, to place the flag against the impressive background.
