Janne Tjärnström and I have been go­ing to Val d’An­niviers for years.

Bike (USA) - - Start -

And for good rea­son: It’s beau­ti­ful, both on a trail and land­scape level. Val d’An­niviers is in the Valais canton (state) of Switzer­land and we were lucky enough to stay 2,337 me­ters (7,667 feet) up the moun­tain­side val­ley in the Hô­tel Weis­shorn. Stay­ing sin­gle­track-side makes life much bet­ter as a pho­tog­ra­pher. Ir­refutably good rid­ing helps this too. When prime light­ing peaks, you’re steps from where you need to be. This shot is not even 500 feet from the ho­tel, one of the many ben­e­fits of the ride-in, ride-out lifestyle of the Swiss.
