Wordless Wednesday - Lucerne, Switzerland

It was Autumn, the season and the views were simply spectacular. It was extremely cold and the fall colours were just so gorgeous. The variety of plants along with the infinite shades of green, turning to light greens, yellows, to browns, to stunning beauty as far as the eyes could reach. It was pure paradise and priceless indeed. Our cameras just couldn’t stop clicking. The stinking warm and humid air of tropical Malaysia seems to be so far away. :D

Water Tower - Lucerne's landmark and most photographed place in Switzerland.

Mount Pilatus in the background. I've blogged about this place before.







Rolex Bucherer of Switzerland

Remember this dying lion? I've blogged previously about this monument. The latin inscription HELVETIORUM FIDEI AC VIRTUTI means "To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss".

    Autumn is the best time of year here. It is when the leaves turn a beautiful colour and fall off the trees.

  18. What a beautiful set of photographs. Sounds like a wonderful place to visit. I've only seen a little bit of Switzerland when I was on a train going from Germany to France. If I can ever make it back to Europe, Switzerland is high on the list of places that I'd like to visit.
