Photographer's Note

There are many many well signposted hiking trails in the Swiss canton Ticino. This one runs in Valle di Mergoscia, a rather steep side valley of Vercasca valley in the hinterland of Locarno.

About one kilometre outside the village Mergoscia there are still very steep vineyards in an altitude of about 800 metres. Along their quarrystone walls - home for thousands of lizards (please see workshop photo) - runs a wonderful hiking trail and now and then one passes old and nearly archaic stables or barns with granite walls and granite roofs. The only sound up here is the chirr of the crickets ...

You also can see this granite barn in workshop.
