Recommended Posts

some shots from the Tyschenzug in Meiringen. This is a sort of carnaval but then in winter. It is a centuries old habbit to chase away the bad spirits of the last year. They start it right after xmas until 31/12. On 30 and 31 they dress up, on the other days they are just in common cloths. In the nigh of 30 on 31 they will go on all night, there will be stands with food and beverages. Rachlette, sausages, gluhwine, etc etc.

They play the same tune on drums and with cowbells all the time, it will get them in a sort of trance I guess. You will however get fed up by it and if you hotel is at the main road you will need earplugs ;)


all shot with M8/28mm elmarit, night shots at 1250iso
