Photographer's Note

On the north side of Lac Léman [Lake Geneva] the Autoroute A9 between Lausanne and Vevey/Montreux is winding along the billowing mountainsides.

These steep and sunbathing hills of Lavaux are extremely well suited for the growing of wine and hence the terracing vineyards are many with grapevines in dense rows.

In this beautiful surrounding - and with a breathtaking view over the lake and the mountains on the French side - this motorway is regarded to be one of the most scenic in Europe.

Yes, I've been on the road again!
