Hinter Rhine Reflections 1
Hinter Rhine Reflections 2
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.

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 .

Hohenklingen is a medieval castle situated on a ridge above Stein am Rhein at 961 meters above sea level. Its first buildings were erected in the 11th century by the Zähringer, a dynasty of noblemen. After they had died out, the German emperor gave the castle to the Freiherren of Klingen in 1218, from whom it derives its name.
From 1449 on, it gained in importance as Switzerland’s northernmost watchtower against Germany. In 1863, the structure became a small spa and restaurant, but soon had to be renovated because part of the structure began to slide downhill. Today, Hohenklingen contains a well-known upper-price restaurant.
In this photograph we see a vista of Stein am Rhine and the Rhine River from the castle Hohenklingen.
