Just imagine being there and using it as a vantage point for your photography hike. Good news - with the help of Mountain Moments, you can!

The catchphrase, "life was more simple back then" can probably be attributed to photography too, with way-back-when generations of cameras having a lot fewer buttons and editing opportunities. But with photo occasions that nature provides us with, we can't be anything else than grateful for seemingly unlimited memory space and flexibility on our favorite time-freezer contraptions. Take the Swiss Alps for example, and the Saxer Lücke destination we cover here. If you are a photographer and a nature lover with experience in hiking, this is the place to be.
