Spiez Harbor View
Spiez, Canton of Bern, Switzerland
This was shot while walking through the gardens of Spiez Castle. A beautiful harbor on the Thunersee (Lake Thun) sits right next to the castle. The atmosphere on the day was wonderful, with Swiss folk of Spiez enjoying a beautiful day. People were kicking around a football, tossing a frisbee, sailing on the Thunersee, and just enjoying the gorgeous day. Also, I had originally intended to shoot this shot without the old man in it, but he was just not going to leave, so I snapped it anyways. Now that I've finished it, I think he actually adds to it. The thing that sticks in my mind about this day is the vivid color everywhere. I don't think I've been to a place that was so colorful. The water was gorgeous aqua blue, the trees and grass were vivid green, and the flowers all over this town were a beautiful rainbow of colors. One of these days I'd like to go back and see some of the other towns on the Thunersee and it's sister lake, Brienzersee (Lake Brienz).
