A Photowalk Through Zurich in Wintertime

It’s Almost Here

Winter is fast approaching and I can hardly contain my excitement. Maybe it’s the crisp, refreshing air, maybe it’s the holidays, or maybe it’s the way the sun lingers low on the horizon throughout the day. If the name of this website doesn’t already give it away, I love winter. Last year I fully embraced winter on the Trans Siberian Railway, taking a train from Tallinn, Estonia to Vladivostok, Russia. My plans this year are far less epic, but I’m looking forward to the season nonetheless.

These photos were shot ages ago, back when I was still learning the basics of digital photography. Some of the camera settings I used then make me say “??” today, but no matter. While I can’t go back and reshoot these, I can digitally bring them up to speed by today’s standards. I’ve edited all of these using a sort of dark, film noir look with a touch of romanticism because that’s the way I see winter. These pictures were all taken with a Canon Rebel XTi, a basic DSLR that can be bought used for about $180 USD today.

Zurich is one of my favorite cities. It’s clean, it’s beautiful, and as we all know, Swiss chocolate is incredible. I hope you enjoy these shots, and I hope they give you a sense of what it’s like to visit Zurich in the wintertime. Feel free to save, download, and use these pictures for any non commercial purpose.
