Breithorn, Zermatt, Valais, Switzerland

Here is another of those blue-tinged contrasty photos whose presence in the gallery I have been found to question. Often, it is what they record that keeps them here and I believe that this is only photo of Breithorn that I have. Even after a summer that sent temperatures to around 30° C around Geneva, there still is a cornice atop this mountain with a summit height of over 4000 metres above sea level. The altitude surely helped the white coating to remain as brightly as it appears in this photo, so much so that keeping anything else appearing only as a black shadow is a challenge.
