Photographer's Note

The first rays of a new day are touching the wave peaks on the sea of fog covering the "Swiss Plateau".

Each fall and winter, cold air trapped between the mountain ranges of Alps and Jura forms a quite persistant sea of fog at about 800-900m. Down below, it makes for dull and chilly days, even more frustrating considering that above the fog sunny days with great far view are the rule.

Luckily switzerland is a hilly country and relieve is often just a few minutes drive away. The location for this shot was a 1100m hill-top of the Jura mountains, less than 10km from Olten.

Sorry for copying most of the note from here, but it was the same place the same day :-)
