My Fascination with Astrophotography
By Yuri Schmid
I’m Yuri from Switzerland. I am 17 years old. Last summer I discovered my fascination for Astrophotography. For four months, I captured the beauty of night sky in Switzerland with the Sony A7S. The result of my journey is a six-minute long time-lapse movie.
I was lucky, because Zermatt celebrated 150 years of Matterhorn’s first climb. They lit up the whole mountain from Italy’s side and the climbing route from the Swiss side and I was able to get unique and rare pictures.
I loved being in the mountains and did not only get nice pictures, I also learned to love a new life-style in nature.
Hope you enjoy it!
