Frozen Beauty

Drive-by Impressions

On another weekly road trip through Valais some frozen trees caught my attention. All too often we walk or drive past scenic views like this without being grateful. Enjoy.

Milano Brewing

Cumunolimbus over Milano

On a day trip yesterday to Milano, Italy there was a snow white summer Cumulonimbus cooking up that contrasted nicely with the azurro blue skies and the stunning architecture in this city.

Snow Impressions

Photoshoot at Fiescheralp

Took the chance to catch some impressions at a snowy mountain walk at Fiescheralp. Surprisingly the photos I shot today in the January afternoon sun divide into two totally different impressions: landscape and scenic-surreal.

Check out my FlickR account for more of the scenic-surreal snowy pictures or the Picasa album for the complete collection of the Fiescheralb photos. Fiescheralp is in Valais, Switzerland.

John F. Kennedy Airport

When flying home from the 2007 SCIP Annual Conference I spend the better part of the transit time at New York's JKF bolted to the window shooting photo after photo.

SetHome

We all know the hazzle to travel, especially these countless hours sitting around at airports and be bored to bits. Sometimes though, the weather gods (or whatever instance is responsible for stunning landscapes, pictures and views) jump right in with some truly remarkable time wasters of the best sort.

So it happened to me while traveling back from SCIP's 2007 Annual Competitive Intelligence Conference in New York City and I was easily amazed at that sight.

I took some more photos during that US stay (well, quite a couple in fact), if you are interested, here is the NYC photo tour.

Chicago Theater

Also a photo made in Chicago earlier this year. It shows the backside of a theater which I found impressive and neat.

Spending a little time on a business trip to the SCIP Chicago conference 2009 I was impressed with this town because of the easy access, space to walk and explore and the friendliness of the people.

Chicago Impression

On my last trip to Chicago I shot this photo in the midst of too many smart people wondering about bulls and bears these days.

Aren't yellow flowers signs of hope though? Well, you'll be the judge.

I thought this to be a funny sight on a business trip to the SCIP Chicago conference 2009 where the economic downturn left scars left and right at the conference (attendance, activities) and the business community in general those days.
