Matterhorn - Monte Cervino

This photo is one of the few I managed to take on this years trip to the Alps. I managed to pick up some sort of stomach bug or food poisoning in Geneva and spent the entire holiday feeling sick in my tent. I didn't manage to climb a thing and I still feel pissed off... ah well there's always next year :) (July 2007). Another photo I managed to get: HERE!

To bad...

...about your trip. But a beautiful photo of Matterhorn. Was it that much snow this July?

Cheers, Kaallin!

Re: To bad...

Hi there, thanks for your comment, my trip sucked but I figure the mountains still going to be there next year so its not the end of the world. Yea there was quite a bit of snow up there when I took the photo, the previous two days had seen a lot of fresh snowfall and the conditions where a bit dodgy. Six soldiers were killed by an avalanche on the Jungfrau because of it.

A wonderful photo of the Matterhorn!

Sorry about the rather bad luck you had back then in 2007 - I can see though you've had very productive mountain summers afterwards, judging by your gallery...That photo you shot of the Matterhorn is a superlative, in any case, one of the best I've seen in quite a while already, and Matterhorn photos are after all almost inflationary and competition is tough!
Cheers,
Eric

Re: A wonderful photo of the Matterhorn!

Thanks Eric, it was bad luck, but that's just how things go sometimes, and as you say, I've done plenty since. Thanks for the vote!

Cheers
