Dear colleagues, as we saw at 1650m was not snow ... I thought it would play pleasure or regret this snow. Personally, I liked very much.
I did a picture on the plateau near the railway station Gornergrat (3089m).
In front you can admire the Matterhorn 4478m.
I look forward to your comments and criticisms. I hope you will like you too this picture.
A beautiful evening everyone,

The Matterhorn (German), Cervino (Italian) or Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps. With its 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high summit, lying on the border between Switzerland and Italy, it is one of the highest peaks in the Alps and its 1,200 metres (3,937 ft) north face is one of the Great north faces of the Alps. It is one of the deadliest peaks in the Alps: from 1865 – when it was first climbed – to 1995, 500 alpinists died on it. The mountain overlooks the town of Zermatt in the canton of Valais to north-east and Cervinia in the Aosta Valley to the south.

The Matterhorn is an iconic emblem of the Swiss Alps and the Alps in general. Its first and tragic ascent by Edward Whymper and party marked the end of the Golden age of alpinism.

The Matterhorn has two distinct summits, both situated on a 100-metre-long rocky ridge: the Swiss summit (4,477.5 m) on the east and the Italian summit (4,476.4 m) on the west. Their names originated from the first ascents, not for geographic reasons, as they are both located on the border.

In August 1792, the Genevese geologist and explorer Horace Bénédict de Saussure made the first measurement of the altitude of the Matterhorn, using a 50-footlong chain spread out on the Theodul glacier and a sextant. He calculated a height of 4,501.7 metres.

Hi Adrian,
there was such a wonderful place, like some heaven for photographer I guess :)
Thank you and all my best,

Hello Adrian,
This is so nice!! Great landscape! Beautiful textured sky. Well I believe that since there is not much snow, it is even better.....not for skiing but for taking pictures since the mountains do not look a solid block of ice!!! Seems like you really enjoyed it!!!! Last year I went skiing in Bavaria for the first time in my life, it was so much fun!!!! But, too cold for an islander like me I guess brrrrr! ;0/

Hi Adrian

Great ski resort in this good looking mountain scpae
Nice details with dramatic sky...

Impresionante paisaje con gran nitidez y profundidad con la famosa montaña sobresaliendo que muestra lo pequeño que somos ante la naturaleza ,debia hacer frio por ese lugar
Buen trabajo

Hi friend
beautiful cold composition
i can't wait anymore to be my town like this place full with snow
but tanks to you and other photographers are showing me some snow photos so i can see the snow on the photos and can wait a little more longer :D

Hello Adrian,
The fabled Matterhorn is gloriously displayed in this well composed image. Scenic, the clouds adorn the view quite well. Your exposure management is precise under a difficult situation. This reminds me I have to start Christmas shopping soon. My best regards.

Salut Adrian.
Vad ca ai gasit in sfarsit zapada ca sa schiezi.Si intr-un loc foarte frumos.
Faina imagine.
O zi buna.Alin.

Hello Adrian,

Fantastique paysage.
Une capture de toute beauté.
La pointe de la montagne déchire les nuages
et sur elle se glissent les timides rayons du soleil.
Belles couleurs. C'est parfait.
