Autumn photo shoot in Glarus

Klöntaler See is a must if you love autumn colours, and if you happen to be near Zürich. This mountain lake in the canton Glarus is about an hour drive from Zürich.

Golden Autumn in Engadine

The “Indian summer” of alpine Engadine is highly prized by Instagram photographers. Many say it’s the most beautiful season in the Engadine when the pinewood forests start to change colours. The best time is between mid September and mid November.
