The Rhine River is one of the longest and most important rivers in Europe at 1,320 kilometres. The Rhine’s origins are in the Swiss Alps in the canton of Graubünden, where its two main initial tributaries are called Vorderrhein and Hinterrhein.

In these two images we see the rock walls of the Rofflaschlucht (Roffla Gorge) reflected in a calm pool of glacier water of the Hinterrhein. Both photographs are available as Fine Art Giclée prints by clicking in the individual images or the link below the photo.

Also, available are greeting and note cards at Zazzle.

All the photographs featured here are from the book “Switzerland in View – A Photographic Essay” that can be purchased at www.stolenshadows.com.

Piazza Ascona, Ticino

Lake Maggiore jagged banks are surrounded by the Prealps of Piedmont and Lombardy. The most northerly section extends thirteen kilometres into Switzerland, where it constitutes the lowest point above sea-level in that entire country.

The climate is mild in both summer and winter, producing Mediterranean vegetation, with beautiful gardens growing rare and exotic plants.

The Piazza in Ascona is right on the lake making it a beautiful place for a leisurely stroll. In this photo we see colorful boats on the blue Mediterranean like water of the lake .
