Flying the DHC-1 Chipmunk over a beautiful winter scenery: Swiss Alps.
And I just realize that my work is available in the digital version of Plateform Magazine. What I wrote 6 years ago is still true: I want my photographs to be like the first 5 lines of a novel. That’s why I always put a character in them.
Beautiful winter light, to start the new year refreshed, in shape, in control.

Challenging light here but the new iPhone XR performs very well. It still managed to capture details in the shadows while not burning the bright sky.
See below for a before and after: the untouched picture and, once clicked, a version edited with Snapseed posted on Instagram (which might be slightly over-processed, I confess, but it shows the level of details preserved).
By the way, this is the beautiful AMPA Morane Saulnier MS317 (1937) based at Lausanne Airport, Switzerland.
Flying from Lausanne (VD) to Lommis (TG) with our Piper L-4 (1944) last weekend, exploring Switzerland from above.
Taking a break during the 2018 edition of a (shortened, due weather) “Tour de Suisse“: Flew there with WD347, DHC1 “Chipmunk”. Wonderful classic.
Back in the air with the 1951 DHC-1 Chipmunk, HB-TUT.
