A new series of timelapse movies which I recorded this summer and autumn in the Swiss Alps.
Most locations are only reachable on foot, some need alpine hikes of 3-5 hours. I spent several weekends in cottages of the Swiss Alpine Club (SAC), where I shot these clips.
Locations are: Diavolezza (Bernina Range, Graubünden), Gleckstein, upper Grindelwald Glacier (oberer Grindelwaldgletscher), Flüelapass (between Davos and Engadin), Schwyz, Rigi, Triftgletscher, Glärnisch.
Thanks to Regina, Michel, , Mirko, Martin, Jesko, ... for (nearly always...) waiting patiently for me to finish a shot!
Thanks to the hospitality in these cottages of the Swiss Alpine Club:
Glecksteinhütte, Trifthütte, Berghütte Diavolezza, Carschinahütte, Glärnischhütte
Shot with a Canon EOS 50D, Canon L 16-35/f2.8, Sigma 17-70/f2.8 and Sigma 10-20/f4.0
Intervals were usually a few seconds (2 - 7 seconds), exposure times slower than 1/100s to prevent TV flicker. Filters used: Hoya ND400, Hoya circular polarizer
