As I get older, I realized how important it is to be home in Flims – the place where I grew up, where my roots, family, friends and wonderful mountains are. I love to see the imposing Tschingelhörner, the surrounding landscape, the biodiversity and the local fauna.
It’s important to protect our nature, that is why we donate 5 CHF of each sweatshirt sold to the Swiss National Park.”

I would like to thanks my lovely friends Ann Ziegler and Julia Stutz for their amazing work and Fabian Watrinet to organize every thing!

Morning Session 2.0

luca5.jpgAND… I had to do it again. I had so much fun taking pictures at the Cresta lake and was hyped to take some more morning pictures. This time I had a longer way to the shooting area. I spend the night in our mountain cabin with a good friend of mine, woke up at 3.45 a.m., taking the bike as far up as possible (it was hard), hiked up 90 minutes along a mountain river in the darkness with our forehead lamp. It was colder as we expected and we were walking a little bit too fast, so we had to wait a long time for the sun…

At around 7 a.m. it got brighter and I could see the mountain peaks far in the east.  At around 8 a.m. the first sun rays arrived us….

The early mornings

crestasee_farbig_2.jpgClose to my home there is a lake, which is covered with morning dew, because the water temperature is warmer then the outside. I pass this way always on my way to school. I thought many times “I really have to go down to the lake to capture this stunning scenery.”! After some ways up and down from Flims to Chur, passing this lake all the time-  I finally went down there to get some nice pictures!

I woke up at 5.30 a.m. biked down to the lake and was absolutely happy how the shooting turned out….

Laax is one of the most innovative ski resorts on the world. We do not have a lot of snow here at the moment. But the mountain crew gives their best to prepare the slopes and parks as good as it goes. It’s a pleasure to snowboard in Laax at the moment. There were a lot of rumors we do not have snow and you can’t ski- thats not true! At the moment it’s hard to find any powder but the slopes are in a very good condition!!

As well Laax opens the mountain an hour early (till 4th of January)! I went up on the first gondola at 7.30 for several times and enjoyed seeing the sun rising from the top of the mountains- unforgettable view! If you have the chance- go for a early morning ride!

And my wish for 2016? Let it snow!!
