Matterhorn: the Symbol of the Alps

Mountain photography is a mix between great lights with majestic sunrises, breathtaking colors, incredible clouds and stars and also some shots during the most classic moment of the day, that is when people are used to experience the mountain activities. Its very important, in any case, to realize some shots that describe the beauty of the place. Try to study the composition, wait for a unique situation, always with the goal to communicate a small photo story.

In these picture we can admire some different situations I met during my small trips to Zermatt, the beautiful village in the Valais region of Switzerland.
