Switzerland - 3 Photos Per Post (1 a Day)

Switzerland is famed not only for its chocolate and watches, but for its splendid lakes, mountainous areas, and beyond amazing landscape.


Please post a maximum of 3 photos per day and 1 post a day if possible, in order to keep a steady flow of beautiful pictures...


Notice:
Please make sure the photograph is not blurry, off axis, and that it shows perfect dimensions and detail of the picture so the viewer won't have a hard time looking at the picture.
I've seen many albums in many threads, and many of them get really boring after watching the same kind of pictures being posting over and over again, especially when they are lame and don't show the natural aspect of the region which the thread is about.
You can post any picture of Switzerland; however to make this thread more interesting for the viewer, please try to post pictures of landscapes, nature, wildlife, and the country itself.


Thank you, and enjoy.

Without your new 2010 Canon, no wonder these photos are not that splendid!


Yes, your new Camera is very good, it just came out not that long ago and I want one too!

Thanks
But it's much nicer when you go there and see the beauty with your eyes... Not only the landscape is nice, but the cities, hotels, resorts, downtown, restaurants... everything about Switzerland defines the word "Gorgeous"

Thanks guys...
About the festival, I also been there too, I spent the whole summer in Geneva and its surroundings, and I miss it so much; let's not forget Geneva also has beautiful girls in every street you walk in, and in every coffee shop you enter

By the way people, I made a mistake in the title, 3 photos per post, 1 per day...
I think it is better to keep pages running without lag or any freezing to post one by one pics... So you can post upto 3 a day, but in separate posts so that the page wouldn't be too big to scroll down.

City of Montreux after a storm:
Montreux is considered the real "Hollywood of Europe", it is one of the havens of the wealthiest people on the planet; Bill Gates is resident of the city. (I been there, much nicer than California Hollywood)

There are so many nice pics of Switzerland all over
you can post one picture a post, as many as you like everyday, but they have to be magnificently beautiful!
