Hi my name is Alex and I recently moved to Switzerland (2012). Before that, I lived in a very beautiful rural region at the very south of Bavaria for 6 years. So I had a lot of subjects to take photos from, especially landscapes, mountains, lakes, woods, rivers, picturesque villages, countryside, bavarian winter scenes. Now I am starting to conquer (photographically of course) our new surrounding: Switzerland.
