Photo Essay: Walking the Bernese Oberland

by Gigi Griffis

Walking the Bernese Oberland

The first thing I did when I arrived in Lauterbrunnen was go for a walk. So was the second thing. And the third thing. And, seriously, can you blame me? Look at this gorgeousness.

I am thinking of buying a bridge camera in the not too distant future and was wondering what kind of camera you use to take the gorgeous pictures on your blog? Also, if you don’t mind sharing, do you use any photo editing software prior to posting your pictures? I really enjoy reading about your adventures with Luna!

Hi Linda,

I use a Canon Digital Rebel XT (SLR) and a Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Dill VC MACRO Canon Exc+ lens.

I am a big fan of Canon as a brand. And, as for non-SLR cameras, I keep hearing really good things about Lumix. I have seen some really breathtaking photos taken with Lumix point-and-shoots even. I’m going to see if I can get my hands on one later this year and try it out.

I do a little editing in Photoshop (usually just cropping or tweaking the contrast on a photo).

Thank you so much for sharing information about the camera and lens you use (and editing software)!

Yeah! I’m actually strongly considering applying for a visa.

You must come up to the northeast, too, and see St. Gallen, Appenzellerland, Lake Constance….!!!

@MelD – That sounds amazing! I will have to ask for recommendations next time I head to Switzerland!
