Interlaken, Switzerland

Knowing that the 50mm is the portrait lens, I was a little worried about how it would do with landscapes.  Boy did that thing not disappoint.  The inability to zoom in or out and the small crop of the frame didn't hinder it at all, and I fell in love with this lens more and more each click.

Deciding to rent a car for four of us instead of paying 190 per ticket for the train system (which I'm sure is amazing if you can afford it) was the best decision we could have made.  We were able to stop along the side of the road at any little view or moment we passed.  We were able to detour to towns & castles just by plugging them into the gps.  We were able to pile our stuff into the trunk and jam to music with windows down.  And everywhere we went we were looking up and down and out at beautiful landscapes & scenery.  Switzerland is. a. dream.  Such a friendly, beautiful, green, clean and fresh country. I've wished I could live in many locations now, but Switzerland is a country I would seriously pick up and move to tomorrow.

What is it about mountains?  So dramatic, so undeniable, so out of place, almost, popping up out of flat valleys. So trying to tell me something.  So I lift up my eyes.

Happy Day, Earth!
