Rocks of the Verzasca river at Lavertezzo.
The place can hardly be called ideal for beach life. No sand, stones are hard and lumpy. But the place is absolutely beautiful and gathers a lot of people on a hot summer day. And there is a natural pool big enough even for diving.

A rather rough piece of nature. Wild and beautiful!
The fresh water attracts people on a warm summer day.
From the place where you were standing we get a good view of a few hundred meters of this river.
A beautiful and well balanced picture with people spread over the entire image.
Best regards, Paul

Hello KAri ,
I suppose that water is quite cold . But the place is superb , with fantastic white rocks .

Yeah, i guess these places can be just as fun and warm as the becah - its just a different way of enjoying it.
its a great visual because we get to see all the lines and textures in the rock formations, lots of movement in the stone, especially on the diagonal. fun shot with excellent lighting.

une superbe composition, la vue rend bien l'atmosphère de ce lieu que j'ai eu l'occasion de visiter.

The rocks of the Verzasca river are notoriously known for their danger and every year some people drown in this tricky river.
But of corse it its absolutely beautiful and now wonder it attracts the crowds. Nice capture with the long view over the river in the back.
hej ja hyvää vikoa

Hello kari, I wouldn't think it is Switzerland. Nice place with the big boulders in the stream. I like such places and would be delighted to go around like these people. Nice picture.
WArm regards MAlgo

Maybe this is not ideal for beach life, but it looks a lot nicer than many beaches. No crowds, no endless rows of sun-beds and umbrellas, no hawkers trying to sell things you don't want. The rocks are quite beautiful and the few people animate the view.

Well this is one place I haven't been to unlike some of your other shots ;) I can imagine cooling off in those cool clear waters on a hot day though. The people create a nice compositional triangle giving the image balance.
The only thing I have had on the rocks lateley is a Jack Daniels with Serghei (Serp2000)!

An attractive photo which shows the textures of the rocks so expertly. I love the subtle gradations of colour and of course the inclusion of the people add another element of interest.

these rocks and the stream looks similar landscape I faced in yosemite, california. anyway I guess here the water is very cold.
very nice use of people and elements.
