Matterhorn by Moonlight
The Matterhorn by moonlight, taken just after nightfall from the Hohbalmen. This scene only lasted a minute or two, as the clouds from the valley below quickly moved up the mountainside, obscuring the view until morning. Thirty second exposure, taken by Howie Silleck, July 7, 2008.

Thanks Kaallin - I wish that the scene had lasted longer so I could have tried a couple more exposures - the clouds appeared so fast I just had a couple of seconds.
Cheers,
