Another beautiful morning in Montreux - and because I got up earlier than usual I decided to take the opportunity and eat my breakfast on the side of the island instead of the front terrace as usual.
I got there just in time for the sun to crawl over the mountain...
A great way to start the day!
We drove through the vine yards of the Lavaux, up to La Sarraz
But it definitely isn't an easy stroll to get there! The path goes up and down through the forest.
Only for people with some mountain goat DNA...
But it's worth it!
My photographer, checking out the location
While I got ready in my "changing room", always careful not to let my skirt drag in the water...
So beautiful, from many different angles!
We also went back to the little river and I waded through the cold water to pose for pictures there. The things I do for art!
Here's a first view at an unedited shot - there are a lot more and i will have some photoshopping to do to get the light and color balance right.
Photo shoots are hard work and I was really hungy when we were done after about 2 hours - also the light was too harsh by noon.
On the way back we made a little detour to Lausanne. There's a Japanese shop and Olivier wanted to go there to buy Calpis - but of course he didn't stop there! Snacks, sweets, whatever, he bought a big bag full of stuff!
And I finally got lunch here:
Lausanne's trash cans are hungry! Feed them!
Towards the evening there were some clouds to ruin the sunset - so I took a picture as long as the sun was still partly visible...
