Montreux’s Last Hurrah

I meant to include this photo in my series on sunsets for this week’s WP Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour, but for some reason I didn’t. It was taken in Montreux, CH along the banks of Lac Leman/Lake Geneva.

Written by

Tom traded his hometown St. Louis Cardinals' baseball cap in the United States for a Borsalino and he now hangs his "capello" in the Puglia region of southeastern Italy. A veteran print and broadcast journalist, with well-worn passports that have got him into and out of 50 countries and counting, Tom fell in love with the "Bel Paese" years ago. As he notes, "I'm inspired by the beauty I find in all things that are very, very old, and reliving history, or at least meandering along the travertine and cobblestone that were laid down over a thousand years ago and just looking up and marveling at what occupies the space still today, really gets my 'Vespa' running." Tom has a good eye behind the lens and is a graphic storyteller, but he'll let you decide as he keeps his camera batteries fully charged and the posts flowing from his creative hideaway in the hills overlooking Ostuni. You can also follow his dispatches via and Anthology Magazine Ireland.


  1. Beautiful stand-alone photograph. I enjoyed Montreaux – but we visited a long time ago. Boy time does go by fast. It is one of those places I would like to return to but there are also so many places I have never seen than beckon me.
