autumn colors in Switzerland

OVERVIEW

Photographically speaking, Switzerland is lucky to have four distinct seasons, each with it’s own special charm. Autumn of 2016 was quite colorful, and Matt and Dagmar Anderson became obsessed with the search for locations with intense, colorful foliage. They were surprised to find that one doesn’t need to hike all day for great Autumn colors. Fall is a terrific time of year to rediscover your creative spirit, get ideas while mingling with other photographers and explore new outdoor locations in Switzerland.

TRIP FORMAT

Our group will rendezvous at the Zurich HB before departing to our location in the Viewfinder van. Matt will get you started with some helpful camera tips and strategies for shooting colorful, leafy scenes. Those with an interest in macro photography will have the chance to get creative as well. We’ll visit two locations on this trip, with a short van ride between the two.

DAGMAR ANDERSON

Dagmar Anderson is a “professional traveler” with chronically itchy feet. She enjoys exploring new countries, cultures and cuisine as often as she can. Her attention to detail comes in handy while planning and preparing for Viewfinder trips and activities. When she’s not out exploring new workshop locations with Matt, she can be found working away at our Zurich office. Dagmar is likely to be the friendly voice on the phone if you call us here at the Viewfinder Center.
