Photographer's Note

It was a busy Saturday in the air. Everybody seemed to enjoy the wonderful pre-summer weather and when we finally landed in Grenchen, the ATIS (automatic terminal information system) told us that it was 26 degrees in the shade. We circled over Lucerne for a while, first crossing Emmen military airfield which was active (the German Airforce had a stop-over for refuelling and just landed when we entered the control zone) and therefore we had to communicate with the tower who gave us instructions what we had to do. "My pilot" told them that we wanted to do some photo stuff over Lucerne and when we began to circle over the town I heard the controller saying that we were doing some photo shooting and that another aircraft should watch out for us. I thought that this was pretty fancy "photo shooting" ... I mean hello, I am just some girl with a camera not knowing what I am actually doing, being up there thinking about shutter speeds and that the pilot was moving over the wrong building and that all went too fast and hoping not to fall down :)

Oh anyway, some of you may know Lucerne and that it is a very pretty town with its river, lake and the mountains as a background. Below you may recognize Kappeler bridge ... maybe not as famous as the Eiffel Tower but for Swiss standards a very much visited sight.
