Photo Challenge: Solitude

M - Rumisberg

Just part of Switzerland on the outskirts of a village with a view on a mountain. You find these places everywhere in Switzerland. You can take a walk on a path, and see no-one for a few hours. Switzerland has enough space it seems. When the population of a country is no more than eight million, there is room for everyone: even a few thousand cows have their own pastures.

At the end of 2016 there were 478 inhabitants living in the village. Now there may be less, probably not more.There is a bus service, but no trains. We paid a visit and parked the car. The road was a one track road leading into the village and everything seemed to go uphill or downhill.

Feldbrunnen to Rumisberg 04.11 (24)

There was a lonely cow in a field on the way to the village. We were the probably the event of the day for the cow when we drove past.

    • Winter is not so bad if you stay more in the low country. I have now got used to it, but I no longer have to go places. In summer it is wonderful for walks in the fresh air.

    No time to stand beneath the boughs and stare as long as sheep or cows….”
