Miniature Switzerland – The Best of Tilt-Shift Photography

In many respects, the Swiss countryside resembles a model railroad setup: Cutesy towns are sprinkled among green pastures, raging rivers and glossy lakes. Trains are everywhere, crossing bridges and traversing tunnels which dot Switzerland's terrain.

Tilt-shift photography is a technique which imitates miniature worlds from regular photographs. So sit back and relax while we take you on a journey through miniature Switzerland with the best of tilt-shift photography!
