Impressions from my visit to the "Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire" (CERN) located on the French / Swiss border near Geneva. Scientists here are searching for obscure subatomic particles using the Large Hadron Collider - a huge particle accelerator ring with a circumference of 27km.

Unknown flowers

Does anyone know what these are? Found growing in the mountains in Switzerland.

Toilet #2

On a mountain top far above the Arctic Circle I came across this stunningly located outdoor toilet. The second picture shows the view that you would get from the throne if you flung the door open - not advisable as it was a bit nippy! I couldn't work out if the two cubicles were meant to be "his" and "hers", or if it was just Swedish efficiency to double the facilities and thus keep the queues down ......?

At any rate, this is definitely a "loo with a view" and so this post is dedicated to the Society for High and Interesting Toilets, founded several years ago after the discovery of a delightful "long drop" in the Swiss Alps which was featured on this blog - see link

The 1000th Post

This is the 1000th post on the Scrapbook Blog. When I began I had no idea that I would take a thousand photos, never mind put them on a blog for all to see! Many thanks to all who follow this humble photo website, to those who have given me feedback and encouragement, to those who have given me camera equipment, and to those colleagues who bought me my first photo software which I'm still using. I raise my glass to you all today, wherever you may be.
(And to the friend who had to leave this bottle of Glayva behind when he returned home to another continent, I'll save some for you ......)

Col de Gentianes

Easter Sunday, and a fresh fall of snow at the Col de Gentianes. Late season skiers are happy!

Bonne Fête!

We were woken this morning at 7.30a.m. by a small band of three Alpenhorn playing in the car park below, in the gently falling snow.

Happy Easter to all!
