A resort takes on a new appearance after dark. The windows light up, things you never saw in daylight become visible.
So, one evening after dinner in Saas Fee recently I wound up the ISO (in one instance as high as 5000) and set off for a tour of the village – and in the gallery below are the images that I found. Five shop window shots, including a magnificent stag. Two night clubs including one with the name ‘Poison’ that has the bizarre headline ‘in God we trust’: I have to admit I really don’t understand the connection there. Finally – the last image – I looked up at a house and saw three horses arrayed along the guard rail of a balcony with a puppet suspended at the end: the imaginary rider of the horses perhaps. The image shown constitutes just a small portion of the frame shot with the lens extended right out to 375mm but I thought it made quite a surreal image.
