Hard times for Julius

Hard times for Julius

Life’s not so easy for Julius, what with the cows breaking into the garden and knocking him off his plinth. Not even Brutus caused so much pain and destruction! See other photos in the Snapped gallery.

Flooding at La Tene

La Tene. Flooding Spring 2015.

La Tene, one of the two historic hearts of celtic civilisation, is only a few kilometres from where I live. With the recent flooding, it is hard not to imagine how the Celts would have coped back then. See more picture of the flooding in there Secret Paths Switzerland Gallery.

La Grande Cariçaie

Champ-Pittet down by the lake

La Grande Cariçaie is a nature reserve by the Neuchâtel Lake that covers a large area of marsh land in which a wide variety of wild birds nest. That’s a cormorant you can see flying by in this picture. The images in the new Secret Paths gallery entitled  La Grande Cariçaie portray the part of the Grand Cariçaie around Champ-Pittet which is run by Pro Natura.
