Upen request from Eleni, today we go on a hike in the Swiss Alps once more.
Here we are at Blauherd at around 2500m marching towards the famous Matterhorn and Le dent blanche, both over 4500m high. The village of Zermatt lies just in front of us hidden in the valley below at 1300m altitude.

Always a pleasure to see views of Matterhorn. High peaks really surround you over there. That path literally seems to disappear into abyss.
I just checked my map that states altitude of Zermatt village being on the range of 1600m.

The mighty alps have never looked so good. Beautiful scene, the path leading in so nicely, and the sky creating those playful clouds as a wonderful backdrop to the awesome peaks.
Really nicely done. All the best

Superb landscape, beautiful blue colors, well framed and rendered, image well done.!

A marvellous landscape view! The path suggests that you make a decision here, the narrow to the left or the wider to the right. There is a very interesting question here, with no answer.

Beautiful landscape! This was taken in July but there's still snow on the mountain, or does the snow ever go away. Love the clarity of those mountains and clouds. Very well done, tfs.

beautiful panorama. I like it very much. Almost two years ago I changed jobs and I almost got a job very near to this mountain. Fate wanted me however to move to England. I always wonder how would my life look like if I got the other job. My TE gallery would have more photos of alpine landscapes like this one.
I like this mountain very much it is so sharp and the shape is so unique. You show it from a nice point of view with the green path in the foreground. Having a ND grad filter would help here a lot. I had similar trouble with my photos in Patagonia where the snow covered mountains and clouds were easily overexposed.
Very impressive work,

Funny to see two hiking photos from you because I just got back from a hike myself today! haha
there sure are some great views up here I see!
how long was the hike? was it very difficult?
great to see the clouds too, as they almost make an important appearance.

Out of so many splendid captures I select this outstanding capture. The detail and point view are perfection. I like the balance in thirds of sky distant mountains and the foreground. Exceptional work Daniel.
Warmest regards and thanks,
