What you see when you run Lugano & Capriasca Scenic Trail

Recently I’ve had the pleasure to shoot at the Lugano & Capriasca Scenic Trail. The course is 50 km long with 3800 m of total elevation gain. For a regular hiker it takes 3 days with 2 overnight stays at mountain huts to complete the course. And a strong runner hits the finish line in sub 6 hours. Impressive!

I will write about my epic experience as a newbie sports photographer in the next couple of days. Stay tuned.


It’s not spring yet!

Winter weather in Lugano is full of surprises. Just a couple weeks back it looked like spring: green grass, blue sky, sunny +15°C. Then it has rained for a few days in a row, turned briefly to snow and back to rain. And Lugano is set for yet more rain in the coming days as forecasters predict.
