On this weekend: Swiss miniatures

This weekend was pretty busy: Melide, Locarno, Lugano, and two times 6 hours in the car when we travelled from and to Zürich.

The scenery was beautiful during the road, and both Locarno and Lugano was beautiful. But I'm not going to write about them right now, because I wanted to start my favourite part: Swiss Miniatures!

There is a park, located in Melide, which hosts a lot of miniatures of Swiss castles, typical building, etc. If you want, you can just run through the park, and you can finish in 30-40 minutes, but it is more fun watching the details of the buldings, the funny schedule of the trains (which seems to be also authentic) and the programmed movement of the ski elevators. So one can spend many hours in the park. For a photographer, it is a paradise, so many details, so many interesting thing to capture.

We were there during the hottest hours in a very hot day, so the shadows was pretty strong, it is not really a good time to take photographs, but I could not help it, there were no sign of any cloud approaching. So it is a bad luck if you want to really take good photos. but anyway, I tried my best, and there are a few good ones.

As you can see in the photos, I loved the small details of a model:


Trains were also very nice:

And some miniatures about huts in Valais:

More photos probably will come from the weekend later, when I get some little rest. :)
