Life through the Lens (25 October 2020)

A day late this week. Sorry, did not feel like publishing yesterday.

When my eyesight was still good, I was a bit of an amateur photographer. This is one of mine.

After my photograph last week, how could I not include a shot of the Matterhorn itself? The Matterhorn stands just shy of 4,500m, straddling the border of Switzerland and Italy, and is one of the tallest peaks in the Alps. In fact, several of the tallest peaks are in the near vicinity.

I love that I managed to capture the Alpenglow here, which gives the mountain that reddish tinge you see.

I like that photo, but taking such a close-up, you can’t really get a feel for the scale, so here is another, from the nearby town of Zermatt.
