Last Saturday I ran away up the mountain for some fresh air and the tranquility. With 2 friends photographers we climbed to Riffelsee to join another friend who was already on site.
My purpose was to photograph Matterhorn at night with the Milky Way and its reflection in the lake. After some checks, the centre of the Milky Way was not going to pass next to Matterhorn. Only the tail would appear around 3-4 in the morning.
Instead, we decided to photograph Gorner glacier with its legendary mountains. From left to right are Monte Rosa and Pointe Dufour (4634 m), Liskamm (4527 m), Castor (4228 m) and Pollux (4092 m), then the Breithorn and its 4164 m.
