#tbt Zermatt and Matterhorn

Matterhorn Zermatt Dawn Star Trails

I wanted to do star trails. It’s not every day I get a sky full of stars. Most days I’m lucky just to be able to see Orion and Sirius in the winter skies. But clouds swirled around the skies of Zermatt, only clearing during brief windows. The last window was just before dawn- when the skies unseen to me were taking on a bright blue. Interestingly, this long exposure shot also caught a light streaking up the side of Matterhorn. I have no idea what this light is- a group of climbers going up the mountain at dawn? I think not, but I don’t have any better guesses.

  3. That light going up the mountain adds some mystery to this fine photo. I need to get out at night more!

  4. Remarkable!! I also thought it was a painting at first!

  5. Congratulations on being able to hold the camera still for so long!
