scaffolding braced the centuries-old gothic wonder, so i shot what i love best – light and shadow. somehow we flew up there, beyond the belfry, at golden hour in the crisp autumn air. we did it, martin and i climbed up the tallest church spire in the world! at dinner later (inside the oddly squat and slanted zur forelle restaurant), i felt waves of movement cascading through me, in directions i could not describe.
