Lauterbrunnen valley, Switzerland

Here are some pictures I took while hiking in the Lauterbrunnen valley in Switzerland. The areas are surrounding the settlements/villages of Lauterbrunnen, Murren, Grutschalp, and Gimmelwald (not to be confused with Grindelwald).
The weather was mostly overcast, but it made for dramatic and moody photos, as well as challenging hiking, since the overflow of water from the mountain tops started to wash away sections of the path. It became quite dangerous actually...we had to run and jump over rushing water taking out the trails, run from a mud slide that i only have video footage of, and we observed several massive rock/landslides on the opposite side of the river valley.

absolutely an amazing nature shots - there is that peace and quiet and open air
and likewise, the hills are alive with the mooing of the cows and the rustling of the waterfalls.
