Photographer's Note

Another shot of Lavaux vineyards. The sky was clearing but eastern end of Lake Geneva kept under thick clouds providing contrasty light.

Swiss vineyards are typically on sunny lower mountain slopes facing lakes or river valleys. With around 800 hectares Lavaux is the biggest wine producing region. Wines are excellent, although not world famous. And the reason is that the Swiss prefer to drink it themselves, very little remaining for export.
