It took me around two hours to satisfy my photo-appetite in this beautiful ice palace! All photographs were taken without flash and with long exposures. This makes the ice glow as you can see on this stalagmite.

Ice Palace #15/20


Here we had another beautiful morning, giving us a unique view of Matterhorn. It’s no wonder that this peak is considered to be one of the most gorgeous ones on earth!

Matterhorn #2/26


The beautiful orange view of the Matterhorn peak, that was viewable only for a short time during the early mornings was so fascinating, that I had to take more and more photos!

Matterhorn #5/26


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!

Matterhorn #7/26

Not all that wander are lost.


A view from a hill near Hörnli at around 2780 meters above sea level. You can see Monte Rose, Lyskamm, Breithorn, Klein Matterhorn and other peaks.

Panoramas #5/6

Mountains are not fair or unfair - they are just dangerous.

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 :~) …

Matterhorn #4/26


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…
