A wonderful shot Swissmay a joy to look at. I would like to take a picnic at this spot I think. Bread Swiss Cheese, Tomato and a white wine - and someone else to drive me on to a quiet hotel later.

Nick, thanks a lot! Oh yes, it was ideal for a picnic and a lovely hiking way to the next village. Now they have lots of snow, you could only pass with snow shoes, if at all. Friendly greetings, May

ah well in the winter we should stay in the barn and think of the summer just gone and the summer to come! This is a lot warmer than leaping around in the snow!

:)) You are right, Nick and that's what I am doing now! In about 6 months nature will wake up in this region and the first flowers will bloom and maybe the bears will turn up again. :) May

Thank you Peter! As I said, next summer would be very nice. :) But who is Roberto? Mange hilsner, May :)

Dear May, it's amazing! You brought back some precious memories! It was in the autumn of 2002 that I was gazing at the same tree and the same wonderful colors as you did, last autumn. I stayed for some time in Switzerland while working in the hotel Val Sinestra, which lies above Sent along the river Brancla. I assume you know the hotel and maybe you even stayed there?!

When I was free I made several trips in the mountains and one of them went along this path from the hotel to Sent. It's for sure one of the most beautiful regions in Switzerland, in all seasons, calm and quiet, with unspoilt nature. I remember I was biting my nails off when I saw those colours, because I didn't have a camera with me, during my stay there and missed it so much. Happily for me you caught them and I immediately added this picture to my favourites.

Once again, thank you for bringing back the memories!

Warmest greetings, Erik

Erik, how wonderful to hear that you know this place! I love the Engadin and sometimes get homesick, when I am not there. It's a paradise! I have started a whole series of the Grisons and I will continue soon with photos from the Engadin, also from Sent and the whole region! You find the photos under my tag 'TraveldocuSwiss', in case you are interested. There are 82 photos by now.

I am very happy that I was able to bring back some beautiful memories to you! I think, anyone who has stayed there for a while, always wishes to go back. I worked in the Engadin, when I was young and I am still very happy, when I am back in the region.

My warmest wishes, May

May, I hope you don't find me overly sentimental but I feel connected with you in a strange manner. I mean, it seemed to me as if you looked through my eyes and 'saw' the same thing as I saw, 6 years ago. In the words that you write and also in your work I spur a great sensibility and fascination for everything that surrounds you, and try to document, like you do in your very interesting travel series.

Maybe it has something to do with the perception of nature and yourself being part of it, I think. Especially when I'm high up (however I'm not a climber) in the mountains, this feeling can be overwhelming, and that's why I like your country so much. In fact I've never felt more at peace with myself and the world as during my stay in Val Sinestra, autumn 2002, not because of the people (though some of them were ok) but during the trips in the mountains that I made alone, as I was at that time. I could just sit, watch, hear and feel for hours on a mountain slope, far away from everything that went along beneath me in the deep, and just be.

This was what's kept me thinking last days: the perception of nature and time, spirituality, memories and interconnections. I wondered if you're familiar with the work of Andrei Tarkovski, one of the greatest directors of the 20th century. I think no one has explored these themes in his films like he did and if you don't know his work I strongly recommend a viewing. Especially The Mirror (Zerkalo), with all it's stunning visual imagery and multilayered storylines and meanings is my favourite movie. Go and see it on a big screen in a film theatre or with a beamer (not on a small tv!). For any really sensible person once seen it, this movie is one of those that will stay with you for the rest of your life, like it does with me.

Liebe Grüsse, Erik.

Hello Erik, here another Erik from the Netherlands. Came across your name many times as I was Googling for my own! Will check out your gallery.

(sorry *May, to react on this to Erik)

How recognizable is your story! To go short here you got me interested in the movie The Mirror I will surely go rent that one!
