The month of June was very rainy in Switzerland. The heavy rains swelled the river Rhine giving us an impressive and wild spectacle of the Rhine Falls.
Rhine Falls, early February. The thermometer marks 4 degrees Celsius below Zero and the sky is overcast. The flat light and the bare vegetation confer the scenery a dreary and desolate aspect. Very few tourists face the biting cold this morning to visit the Rhine Falls. What a contrast to the noisy crowd that visits this popular tourist attraction during the summer. And yet, even in this melancholic winter look the Rhine Falls keep up their appeal.
