It's been quite a funny day today. Charlie, my dog, stared at me with his sad puppy eyes as I was leaving home in a rush, so I couldn't resist to take him with me and being a part of this exciting experience.
I left my house late, like I always do. I know I'm swiss and that my country is "the" country of watches, but I never manage to be on time. I drove drove drove, hoping to find the sun somewhere, but obviously, I didn't. I had decided much earlier that I wanted to have a lakescape, so I took the direction of the Vierwaldstättensee, near Lucerne, one of the most beautiful place in Switzerland in my opinion. I looked for nuances in the sky, but didn't find any. The atmosphere on the lake was mystical and it's what I love. As Charlie was with me, I had to find a quiet place, he's not always other-dog-friendly. We landed in Meggen, where there was a little harbour, beach and pier. It was about 15 minutes before the T-Time. I tried many positions, but finally found this one. I forced Charlie to stay away during the 5 decisive minutes, locked him up on the pier, he was mad at me haha. Now my alarm's ringing, and I clicked the shot at 14:00'23''. Like every other people did on the planet at the exact same minute.
