Weekly Photo Challenge: A mesh gallery day at Rochers de Naye

Rochers de Naye is a Mountain in the Swiss Alps (2042 m) overlooking Montreux. It is only accesible by cog wheel rail way. The journey takes about an hour and it is well worth the effort as the views  let you look over Lake Geneva (Lac Leman) to Lausanne and the Jura, Savoy and Vaud Alps and the Dents du Midi. Just spectacular. Whilst there you can eat in the restaurant which is built into the rock face (we didn’t because we had eaten well in Montreux.) There is also a marmott park with hides built in rock caves which allow you to observe them closely and also allows spectacular views as well. At Christmas it is a favourite with my nephews as Father Christmas is present along with his reindeer. They have sleigh rides and ski. These photos were taken at the beginning of summer.

This post was done for the Weekly photo challenge If you have the time hit on the square symbol top right hand corner  one in from the edge, which will make the photo the correct size. The photo quality is just superb (in my opinion.)

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

  3. Oh, this hurts my heart with its beauty and reminds me of Grindelwald, Switzerland where I worked for a time many, many years ago! One odd thing–the Mesh gallery was on the last shot when I got to the page. Weird!

    Irene, your photo captures the amazing atmosphere of Switzerland. I loved living there for four years and your photo transported me back there, thank you!
