Magical waterfalls of Switzerland

— Switzerland has some magnificent places to visit. Nestling in the heart of Europe, between the Jura massif and the high peaks of the Alps, there are plenty of landscapes to photograph. Between lakes, rivers, waterfalls, mountains, hills and remote villages, the choice is vast!

In this series, I’ve selected my photographs of waterfalls and rivers captured in the cantons of Vaud and Fribourg. I’ve always been drawn to landscapes where there’s water, and I particularly like long exposures.

With these photographs, I’m taking you on a journey to discover some secret spots, but also some great classics such as the Dard Waterfall and the Tine de Conflens, two well-known spots in the canton of Vaud, and the Jaun waterfall, a must-see in the Gruyère region.
