The National Geographic International (USA) published a reportage about the glaciers in Switzerland. The article is illustrated with one of my photos of the Aletsch glacier. The Aletsch glacier is the largest in the Alps. It is 23 km long and covers more than 120 square kms in the Canton Valais in Switzerland. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage in 2001. The photo was taken in the summer of 2007.

The Swiss Magazine COOP chose my picture “ Vatican angle 0° ” in the photo contest Play of Light (Lichtspiele) for the 10 finalist photos – out of 1.500 contestants. The picture had been taken in St. Peter’s Square in Rome. I had taken the picture with a long exposure without a tripod (and flush floor ???), looking for an absolute symmetry with the obelisk and the cathedral. Low angles belong to my favorites when I photograph because the subjects become oversized.
