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 :~) …

This photo was snapped from a hill that I conquered after a half-hour hike. I know this photo is nothing special, but I have to include it just for the sake of my memories. Every now end then I think of the deep snow and the slow approach towards the[...]

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

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.

This photograph is taken at the same moment as the second picture above, just the Matterhorn peak is zoomed a little bit to give you an idea how hard it must be to climb this holy of “holies” …

The last photo is a sparkling icy ceiling. I hope you enjoyed this Ice Palace section as much as the other galleries and you will have time to visit this fantastic high-altitude sensation on your own.

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 …

A view from Klein Matterhorn to the Italian valley – Testa Grigia (3480m) the end station of the cable car from Cervinia. You can see Mont Blanc on the horizon a little bit to the left from the middle. To be able to spot Mt. Blanc a bit easier you[...]

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!

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

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..

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.
