“The boring flower snapshot” in 2020

The boring flower snapshot is still going strong. I cycled past a field of flowers this week and stopped to take some snaps. The light was beautiful. Taken with my smartphone… As they say, the best camera is the one that is with you. View my album “The boring flower snapshot” on Flickr.

La domenica sportiva

I went for a long slow run today. Along the Wiese river. Up to Bettingen. Via my favourite sawdust track (aka Finnenbahn) at Ausserberg. And, ending my run at the Kneipp facility in Riehen. Feeling positive and blessed.

Snapshots of the day

Best chiperoni.ch snapshot of 2016?

Another year has passed. And it’s time to look at my photos and select a snapshot per month. My photo selection skills are influenced by memories, rather than the photo’s quality alone. The method: I quickly scan through my photos on a per month basis and select a photo based on number of views, personal… Continue reading Best chiperoni.ch snapshot of 2016?

Autumn colours

Last weekend, I went for a walk on Belchen in the southern Black Forest (1414 m). Not as high and spectacular as the Swiss alps, but still very beautiful. I nearly forgot to take my camera. Here are some snapshots:
