Back in my usual landscape mode... :D

I had a recent business trip to Switzerland and had a day off in the middle so I took the cog wheel to the top of Pilatus near lucern. Looked cloudy and hazy from lake level but was stunning by the time we got to the top.

These were well worth the trip Robbon. Beautiful pics and something for the "to do" list.

A couple of those shots look like the James Bond villain hideout from "On Her Majesty's Secret Service"

Maybe you were thinking of the Schilthorn? The only trouble with it is that in the winter, after a two hour lunch where the revolving restaurant takes in a 60° panorama of the Alps, you are faced with either a black ski run or, unless things have changed, having to pay to go down on the lift. I was always too mean to pay. :lol:

I was thinking of the James Bond movie too! :lol:

Very envious of your travels, but love the photos! I especially like the B&W, but they all show what spectacular scenery you were spoilt with. :)
