matterhorn_21

This picture makes me happy mainly because of the Matterhorn model in the foreground. This silhouette made of snow looks pretty much like the real Matterhorn in the background! Impressive…

The mountains will always be there, the trick is to make sure you are too!

My favorite panorama from Klein Matterhorn.. A lot can be seen on this pano – French Alps (Mont Blanc), Swiss Alps (Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Obergabelhorn, Zinalrothorn, Weisshorn, and many others) + part of the Italian Alps …

I will start with a picture of the entrance to the Ice Palace. It is located at around 3810 meters above see level. The entrance is rounded, like a tube, and takes you under the ground. As you can see, the architecture it is more functional than esthetic.

This last photo of the Matterhorn gallery is a view of Matterhorn from the highest sightseeing platform in Europe accessible by cableway at 3883 meters above sea level! Can you get any higher? Without a hike :~D

Take only pictures; leave only footprints.

Twin peaks in the middle – on the right is the Taschorn (4491m) and on the left Dom (Dom de Mischabel – 4545m). Even though Dom is not the highest peak in Switzerland, it is the highest mountain completely in Swiss territory.

You don't need to climb a mountain to know that it's high.

It may seem really boring at this point for some viewers, because all the photos look so similar. I still like every single one and to say the truth many photos that I had taken have not been published over here at all..

Matterhorn #7/26

The mountains are calling and I must go.

I took this one during the afternoon. The funny thing is that I saw a very similar photo on a postcard down in a Zermatt shop. I guess we both intended to have a larch on the foreground :~) …

A similar view as the #10 photo. This time you can see the Jungfrau region far in the middle on the horizon very clearly. This picture was taken in mid-February although it looks like in early November ~ global warming is no joke!

I took the pictures for this panorama around 6:30am with long exposures. It was snowing over night so I felt the photos might have a ‘polar’ feel..

The tram that connects Furi-Trockner Steg & Trockner Steg-K.Matterhorn. Holds more than 100 people, travels 10m per second and is huge! Here we can see one departing from Trockner Steg station towards Klein Matterhorn.

Thanks to moderate snowfalls during the evening and the whole night the strong wind was blowing snow from all the higher peaks including the mighty Matterhorn..

Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.
