Re: Amazing how the clouds

We were very lucky to get to Zermatt before dark that day. The scenery was just as taken straight from dreams there, alpine giants were falling asleep, fantastic moments.

Re: Fantastic white winds

Yeah, there must have been strong winds up there then and next day the visibility around the valley was none just white fog, so that one was the most memorable moment from that part of our cross through Swiss Alps.

Re: oh my..

Thanks Vitaliy,

I've got maybe more than a dozen of those classic Matterhorn shots from that last May evening and thanks to that winds up there each of them is looking totally different, but I just don't feel it would be a good idea to swamp SP with all that stuff :)

Re: oh my..

I had some wonderful experiences with storms high in the mountains. True that you can be afraid, but the impressions are usually so memorable. Feel invited here Vitaliy: http://www.summitpost.org/storm-in-tazka-valley/460115

Take care
