Our Best Switzerland Pictures

Written By: The Planet D

Dave took amazing Switzerland pictures from Lucerne to Bern and Interlaken to Geneva. When I look at this collection of Swiss photos, I am impressed by their variety.

We already shared some Instagram photos with you from our time in Switzerland, but an iPhone can never compare to a photograph carefully crafted with a Canon DSLR.

Dave used several different kinds of post-processing and photography techniques to achieve a variety of different views of Switzerland.

Yes, I love Dave’s shots of Switzerland.

I enjoy throwing up my photographs taken on the iPhone for everyone to see our travels in real time, but I adore seeing his shots after the trip to really get a taste of the beauty of the country.

To achieve different looks, Dave took his Switzerland Pictures using a variety of methods.

HDR photographs are always very dramatic but I also love his Swiss Alps pictures in Black and White and his selective colour photograph of the Swiss Countryside.

Depth of Field

There’s the use of a shallow depth of field when walking through a Swiss vineyard, a long exposure night shot of Interlaken and a good old fashioned picture where no post processing is used at all.

  1. These photos are breath taking – just like Switzerland!! You’ve really done it justice and brought back many happy memories.

    I especially love the photo of Chateaux Chillon. It looks so ‘moody’.

  2. I live between Switzerland & the UK and a lot of these pictures make me feel nostalgic. I liked the Chateaux Chillon a lot! Thank you.

  3. The photos are beautiful and have a special light that gives them a surreal and unique. Really good photographer.


    P.S I found you with Stumble

    • Lucky you! Switzerland is a beautiful country, and I’m jealous of your economy. Everyone seems so well off there. Thanks for sharing your article, we’ll definitely check it out.

  5. I was born and raised in Switzerland. These pictures make me home sick. And I have lived more than half my life in the USA. Still, my family lives in Switzerland!

  6. I always love seeing your photos, especially when they are of such a beautiful country.

    Many years ago, my grandmother painted a picture of Chateux Chillon so it was nice to see it from a slightly different angle.

  7. only been to Switzerland once, but loved it. Your HDR shots are gorgeous, they all look like paintings!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year by the way. Hope to meet up with you guys again soon 🙂

  8. Switzerland is very beautiful place to visit.We have really great Adventure tour when have tour of Switzerland.These pics are very nice and specially the night pics are looking so attractive

  9. Wow, you’re right about the variety in those shots. I love the colours of them too.
    But I get the feeling you can’t not take a good photo of Switzerland because of those mountains. With a backdrop like that, every shot is just stunning!!

  10. Those are absolutely breathtaking views and I hope you consider taking those shots minus the awful HDR-processing, which is a fad and i’m sure in a few months or years you will agree 🙂 Or not..either way, thanks for sharing!

  11. These are awesome pictures.I am so much impressed by the detailed photography you have done here and the views are awesome.I really enjoyed a lot watching them.Very good job.You guyz are doing awesome work.Keep up the good work.

  12. My favorite place Switzerland looking so beauty in your Photo Collections. Never Seen such a collection of Switzerland Images. Looking So Beauty.

  13. These are some amazing photographs. Switzerland has some of the most beautiful and dramatic landscapes, images you would think came from a movie.

  14. Dave is truly a great photographer and these photos are simply stunning! The black and white with the purple flower and the night shot of Interlaken are my favorites.

  15. Now that people is how to promote Switzerland in photos – truly remarkable what you have captured. If I worked for the Swiss tourism board I’d be contacting you immediately. I’d give anything right now to be sat on the bench looking out at the Swiss Alps.

  16. I’m in love with these photos! Been a while since I checked the site (self-imposed mini digital detox), I think the last post I saw were the photos of the Grand Canyon (with all the light pouring in…I wish I could remember the exact name). These are absolutely stunning, some of them even look like paintings. I love the plant (thistle?) in colour in the foreground with everything else in black and white, the first two of Bern, and the one of Interlaken the best (the mountain in the background is a fantastic effect). Needless to say I’ll be checking in more often now that I’m fully back online!

  17. Typical Switzerland is right! Every way you turn in Switzerland is another fantastic sight. Loved your pictures.

  18. Simply gorgeous. I loved the wine terraces in Lavaux, I was there last fall and the colors were incredible!

  19. I lived in Switzerland for over four years. These shots certainly make me yearn for the mountains. Great job capturing the beauty of the countryside. Cheers!
