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.

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!

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 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.

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.

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.
