i like this shot!

there are so many photos of matterhorn, showing the same thing, but i have seen very few from the summit. this one is great - a relaxed climber looking down on some wonderful scenery.

Beautiful perspective. To add to that, I have rarely seen a picture of this high of quality taken in the 1950's. Excellent work.

During the 1950s no one wore a helmet. I climbed the Matterhorn two years earlier. I didn't notice any falling rocks. I wish the weather on July 2,1955, had been this good. Clouds obscured the scenery except only the highest peaks.
