A huge metal sculpture of a horse standing at the side entrance of Lake San Murezzan where the traditional ‘White Turf Races’ take place in St. Moritz — these are different horse races that are performed on the frozen Lake where a lot of high society people meet, party and show off. The belly of the horse is hollow and can be entered through a stepladder at the back of the horse.
Unfortunately this year the ice of the lake was quite thin so they already had to cancel the first races. This morning however there is some hope that the rest of the lake will be frozen very fast as we have some traditional freezing temperatures again.
As it gets warmer during the day snow starts to melt and from time to time a heavy load will be released by the trees … I only got once into such a massive snow shower – lucky enough i had put back my camera in the bag …
Back view of a traditionally built house with local wood and stones. As I could not frame the whole house with the 35mm field of view of my fixed lens camera I just captured an interesting and typical part of the building. Seen at Via Alpina, St. Moritz, Switzerland.
“Hi, my name is Enzo Lopardo and I live and work as graphic designer, photographer and musician in Switzerland.
As photographer I manly work on assignments for a newspaper and for my clients of my design studio. For the newspaper I do a lot of mixed reports such as traveling, exhibitions and gastronomy. As for my own clients I’m into product, food and architecture photography. Lately I started out with some portrait shooting.
In my Tumblr blog – besides some photos from my assignments – I want to focus on my deep love for nature in a variety of settings. For me macro shooting opens up an extraordinary and fantastic new visual world to be explored while landscapes challenge my ability to create an appealing composition. As a creative contrast to nature I also love to shoot some street photography – mostly in black & white – and architectural objects that have a special geometric and perspective to it.
Thanks for dropping by – hope you enjoy exploring my blog and if you got some questions feel free to contact me!
I’ll be off for the next 2 Weeks heading once again into the heart of the Swiss Alps. For shure there I’ll find winter season with a lot of snow.
The last years I always went on these trips with a bag full of lenses and gear. But this time I will take the challenge with just one camera and a fixed lens and no further equipment. Looking forward to this whole different approach and curious to see how I will cope with this minimal setting.
You all have a creative and wonderful time and I’ll see you again very soon!
