Photographer's Note

The famous view of the Matterhorn from Zermatt. This is the view that is sketched on the triangular boxes of Toblerone chocolate. Fortunately the clouds lifted early in the morning, and I was able to get a viewpoint overlooking the town. After a short while the sun illuminated the church steeple, which had been in the shadow of a cloud.

I lightened up the lower half of the photo in Photoshop, using the colour gradient tool, because I had to underexpose the photo to ensure the snow did not get burned out.
