The spectacular piramid of the Matterhorn from Hohbalmen, at 2664 meter hight. The hike to Hohbalmen takes 3 hours and is a very nice hike. From Hohbalmen you can see also the Monte Rosa and the goup of the Mischabel.
Matterhorn-Cervin, view from the upper slopes of Cervinia, on the Italian side of the mountain. It was 8:30am. We have just started to walk, our goal for the day is to sleep at Carrel Hut, 3800m hight, located on the ridge, right in the midle of the photo.
Back from Kili, August 11th, I have been lucky enough, on the plane to Amsterdam, shoting this picture. Above all having climbed Matterhorn one month earlier. View east direction, the Lion ridge and Zermatt in the distance.
This photo was taken the summer of 1961 while on an American Youth Hostel bicycle trip through Europe. I found it while going through an old album and scanned it from a print. Ther were fewer buildings there bck then.
Matterhorn from Monte Rosa at approximately 14,000 ft. Photo taken March 1983 with a Rollei 35mm camera and a Zeiss lens on Kodachrome film, scanned into a Macintosh. Ski group had just been dropped by helicopter.
Matterhorn, morning time at 7.58 AM on 10th of December 2006. After 3 days of extremly bad weather & snow I was waiting for beutiful morning. Picture taken from my balcony of Zermatterhof hotel in Zermatt. It's a shame I had to resize the picture.
What a beauty!
Here is a photo unlike any of the 24 other Matterhorn photos: Peter Macomber outside of the Scoenbiel hut with the west facing slopes of the Matterhorn as a background.
The picture was taken by Andy Schmitt at approx. 8:00AM with my wide angle fixed-lens Leica as we are about to begin our trek back to Zermatt. August 4, 1954.
