mountains_02

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.

Lets switch to another scene finally! :~) I snapped this one from the train on my way to Gornergrat. I have a special feeling about this photo even though it may not look as special for all of you.

Matterhorn #8/26

mountains_11

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!

On this picture you can see the tunnel from the inner side. The first part is not as nice as it could be, but when you get lower towards the blue light the nice things arise.

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

On this picture you can see a typical image of a very strong WEST wind. The cable-cars and chairlifts were closed with only one T-lift open in the Matterhorn glacier paradise.

Matterhorn #14/26

matterhorn_03

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 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.

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..

Matterhorn #15/26

One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.

The palace was built several meters below the surface in the glacier. On this particular picture you can see the second part of the entrance tunnel, which has blue back lighting.

This photograph might give you an idea how the Gornergrat (on the right) is situated. It is also connected with Hohtälli via cable car. On the photo you can also see a little black box between the two stations – that is Stockhorn.
