Matterhorn & Dent d\'Herens
Cloud Spectacle above the mighty Matterhorn (4478m) and its neighbour Dent'd'Herens (4171m)
Between the peaks is Colle Tournanche (3479m.)

Bad weather was rolling in very fast creating the nice sky above Matterhorn.

Lovely picture. Have you tried it as just a greyscale image?
If not it does not matter as this is wonderful.

Hi David, I just tried it in a grey-scale: it looks also beautiful, but the blue colours of the sky as only 'real' colour in the image (like it is now) I like a little better :-)
But I definitely see your point. If you want to see what you think I can send you the greyscale image?
Thanks for your comment! Greets Lodewijk

Deze is ook erg vet. Dramatisch.
Ben je zelf naar 3800 m gelopen? dan wordt Nepal een eitje.

Like a ~'cloud of death' from some film, just before evil dragons or aliens come swooping down ;)

Thanks a lot mills! It is indeed fascinating to see how fast the weather can change around Matterhorn. These dark clouds appreared in less than 30 minutes. And 30 minutes after this shot the peak looked like this:
