The Bloom on the Quay

The “Quai des fleurs” in Montreux got its name for a reason – but also other parts of the lakeshore with other names have nice flowers. Following is a small selection of 29 of my photos that can also be seen on flickr (there all in the same medium size; here on the blog, I decided to feature some in larger sizes, some as thumbnails only).

On the rainy Thursday, there were at least some breaks in the rain on the afternoon inviting to a photo walk:

    Kann mich Elke nur anschließen, die Fotos sind sehr gut geworden. Die 40D scheint ja nen ganz passables Gerät zu sein – da bin ich neidisch.

    Danke! Ja, ich kann über die 40D nicht meckern (dass sie und die Objektive ein gewisses Gewicht haben, das man mit sich rumtragen muss, lässt sich ja schlecht vermeiden…) – bis auf 3 oder 4 Bilder, bei denen ich Kontrast und/oder Helligkeit etwas angepasst habe, sind alle unbearbeitet.

    (Naja, manchmal hatte ich auch die Kamera etwas schief gehalten, sodass ich das Bild noch geradedrehen musste…)
