Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen (Rivendell)

Photo day!

Nearing the end of the current round of ROW80 and my words have slowed to a trickle. The main excuse is travelling! Next week might be a photo post as well. Hope you all enjoy!

Interlaken and Lauterbrunnen (otherwise known as Rivendell)

As if my own photos aren't enough, here's one from Shari Blaukopf, since I haven't shared her lovely watercolours in a while:



Hope the skies are clear, wherever you are!

What a beautiful place. Felt as if I visited already, but would love to do so in person. Hot and clear skies here.
Amazing place! I can seel why they call it Rivendell with the waterfalls and mountains.
Looks like that cow photobombed you.

Nice. You can call the trip "research" for beautiful settings. Now you have visual aids :)

Wow it looks amazing and your photos are beautiful.

It's somewhere I've read about but I've never really seen any pictures; I can see how it inspired Rivendell.
