It is late in the afternoon and I am the last skier on the piste. Why hurry when you have the place to yourself? The slope is completely silent until the Piste Patroller arrives behind me. Here we have just crossed the Italian-Swiss border to enjoy this evening view of the Matterhorn, from a different and less well known angle from the usual shots.

Beautiful shot! The light is fantastic and the sun on the slope of the mountain looks awesome! The sharpness is great and we can see all the textures of the Matterhorn until the peak.

Long time no see... How are you! Too much ski, no more time for TE.
Not an easy shot to balanced, between the lite snow and the shadows. But you did great and you have achieved a nice atmospheric scene, nicely composed, with a summit that gets is part of the sun. And as a matter of fact, we are not used to see this angle over the Matterhorn.
Best wishes for the New Year!

très belle qualité de l'image. La lumière est top et tombe bien sur ce superbe Cervin. Beau travail.

bonjour sur TE, et une bonne année à toi, tu reprends avec une belle photo de montagne sous une lumiére idéale pour mettre en valeurce refuge, un cadrage bien calculé et bien équilibré

Well composed, excellent color tone and beautiful snowy scenery! You're capturing this scene from good angle in the point to draw out a slope effect, and it's very effective about the contrast between bright white at the center and a bit dark color tone of the other side, I think. And then, ropeway arranged in upper right draws out a good effet for the whole.

Une vue méconnue du Cervin. Nous n'avons pas l'habitude de le voir sous cet angle.
La lumière est sympa sur l'arrière plan.
Un retour sur TE tout en beauté.

Olá Susanna, nice to see a new post of yours. I suppose it's better to be sking than being sat at the computor ;-) Right now I'm looking through the window and considering to climb up the mountain for some snowboard...Anyway, this is a beautiful sight and sensation of freedom from the end of the day in a ski resort. Love the way you framed the peak and last sunshine on the mountain, good work with the shadowed FG.

well really, I would not know that this is Matterhorn if you wouldn´t say so...so refreshing to see a new view and the mountain light is really wonderful...
Take care, Ivana

Excellent view to this majestc and famous Matterhorn. A very well composed image and great use of light and colors to create a nice feel and excellent depth. The play of light through the snow road & slope slope in center, with deepened shadows in the front make this picture even more powerful, enhanced by the great Matterhorn and the well lighted building in the middle of the frame. Well done.
