matterhorn_08

This photo was taken at a funny moment. An airplane was getting near Matterhorn so I ran inside for my camera and made a few pictures.

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

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…

Matterhorn #22/26

Their intention was to have various ambient light color in different sections of the ice cave. I think in the end it was a good idea and makes the palace charming!

I really love nature and photography and when I have a bit of luck one photo can make me happy for weeks and months. This lovely bird is pretty much the case and it has been nesting on my desktop as a wallpaper for a while..

I took another ‘cabin’ photo with the peak a little bit hidden behind the hill. There is also a nice chapel as you can see on the foreground of this picture.

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

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 :~) …

Matterhorn #4/26

Not all that wander are lost.

This photo is also among my most favorite pictures that I have taken during my stay in Zermatt. It is really hard to say if there is a nicer place on Earth.. :~)

Matterhorn #13/26

Snowflakes are one of natures most fragile things, but look what they can do when they stick together.

It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.

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.

panoramas_06

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..

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.

Surrounding Mountains #25/28

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.

Take only pictures; leave only footprints.
