    Re: Alps Tour/Vacation

    Went to Alpine countries in Europe with a tour group and had a great time. I brought my 4x5 Tachihara view camera with me, many thanks for everyone's suggestions. I took some 4x5 photos, but none of them is a masterpiece. Below are several from Zurich, Switzerland.

    Looks fun!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    Thanks John and Emmanuel! We did enjoyed this trip.
    After we visited Zurich, we went to Lucerne, Switzerland. Lucerne is a beautiful place, it is a tourist town. We also went to Mount Pilatus. We could not see anything from the top of Mount Pilatus because it was cloudy that day, however we enjoyed the rides. After staying two nights in Lucerne we went to Annecy, France through Bern, Switzerland. Below are several LF photos from Annecy.

    Thanks for sharing your images!

    Too bad that the weather was cloudy!

    This reminds me my first visit to Iceland, we camped for 2 days near a very famous glacier, and did not see anything, clouds were down to ground level an no clearing up for 2 rainy & foggy days... hence I had to come back; a few years later, we had at the same place bright sunshine and warm weather with magnificent views. But Icelands's weather is more unpredictable that Western European weather.

    I have never been in Iceland, but we might go there in near future.
