~The legend of the mythical place of Shangri-La was inspired by James Hilton's legendary novel Lost Horizon,
which evokes images of utopia and serenity. A tranquil haven perched high between mountains and
the fertile Blue Moon Valley in Tibet, Shangri-La casts a spell on all who resided there.
Today, Shangri-La stands as a synonym for paradise...~
An extra special thank you to Paul Butler of the UK for the use of his private Swiss Holiday Photographs. I found them on his personal website online [link]
and just knew there was a Shangri-La in them. Permission requested via email and Paul ever so kindly allowed it.

I remember seeing this film as a kid. It blew me away, the fantasy of it all and something thats always been one of those extra special memories of childhood that stays with you forever.
This little baby took 12 hours and 43 layers in PSP.
I do hope that everyone likes my interpretation of Shangri-La.
