Gotthard Pass

When we travelled from Zurich to Lugano, we took the Gotthard Road Tunnel which, at 16km, is the third longest road tunnel in the world. This tunnel provides a much faster link between central Switzerland and Milan than the Gotthard pass.
On the way back though, we decided to take the Gotthard Pass instead as it promised to be a beautiful drive through the Swiss Alps. Not being a huge fan of heights and feeling a little weary of slippery icy roads, I was not too sure how much I would enjoy the excursion, but it was worth every nail I chewed off!

I was looking earlier today before you posted this and thinking what a great eye you have for the simple in life and then the ability to turn it into a great piece of art. Now later in the day more of the same with different subjects. You are very good Karin. It is always a treat to see what you are able to do.
