When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.
I took this photo from the Schwarzsee, right below the Matterhorn. Of that I am sure. We were on a holiday in the Alps, right on the France/Switzerland border, at the end of August. And visiting the Matterhorn was something we just had to do. Little did I realise that I would subsequently “meet” a blogger from the area on here! Lucky so-and-so, to have views like this.
So the camera told me I was on the Schwarzsee, but not the direction in which I was looking. So I spent hours and hours after I got home, even sending back off to Switzerland for high-quality maps of the area. My best guess, including my fading memory, this is a mountain called the Weisshorn (until somebody tells me differently!) Actually this is one of the tallest peaks in the Alps, just topping 4,500m. I love the snow flurries being blown off the side of the mountain, we could not have hoped for a more glorious day!
