My painting in lockdown

During lockdown I just took out the paint & brushes to brush up my old hobby. using mixed media just painted a landscape portraying Switzerland’s star village “Gstaad” which is famous for winter sports and celebrities vacation homes. This village has got various types of accommodations including a 5 star hotel.

One of the snow capped peak of the Glacier 3000 is seen at far. This is the one of the tourist destinations of switzerland. There is a ropeway service from ground level to the peak.

This is Gstaad a star village of Switzerland showing Glacier 3000 at far end. i visited this place in the year 2011.

From my Europe diary

Let me post some of the beautiful pictures captured during my Europe tour. It is difficult to select pictures out of thousands. In my opinion, whole Europe is beautiful, well maintained and people are disciplined rule abiding and tourist friendly.  This is concluded as a result of my observations during my stay at Switzerland over a month. Some of the beautiful pictures of those beautiful countries are placed here so that you can see how beautiful they are.

This is the standard roads (Highways) of Europe and it is noticed that there is no road is crossing the highway. All crossings are avoided by overbridges so there is  no interuption of traffic on the Highway. We travelled smoothly 600 to 800 Kms per day but never felt tireness because of the smooth highways and also may be the climatic conditions.

No, it is not a manipulated picture. Its a true picture taken on 3 Jul 2011 by me at Vevey town of Switzerland. Chairs are permanently fixed on the rocks of the Lake shore which can be used by anyone. See carefully, at your left, some more chirs are occupied by some beautiful ladies, It their way of life. The lady is reading a book on the lake side and other ladies seems to be interested in chit chatting to pass their time at this beautiful atmoshphere.
