Great sunrise!

Seen from the Grand Mountet (which I really want to visit a soon as I can) Ober Gabelhorn is just such a beautiful mountain, with one of the most elegant ice faces I know!
Great capture!
Cheers,
Koen

Re: Great sunrise!

Thanks a lot, Koen! Yes, I found the same thing already when I first set eyes upon it having reached the "bend" before crossing the wide rubble plateau leading to the Grand Mountet hut, and then all the more when I was on the moraine right above the Glacier du Mountet - that peak is so monumental and yet at the same time of such a graceful elegance!!
Cheers, Koen,
Eric
