A leisurely stroll

After yesterday’s lengthy day, my wife and I enjoyed a gentler day today. Cog railway to Riffelalp and then a 40 minute walk to Grunsee – a small lake on the side of the Findeln valley.

In one direction, across the lake, the Matterhorn still has a commanding presence.

Turn through 180 degrees and the Rimpfischhorn fills the picture – one of the mountains on the high ground between the Zermatt and Saas Fee valleys.

Dead centre is the Fluhalp mountain hut, a stunning location for a hut. In the foreground the huge lateral moraines of the ancient Findel Glacier can be seen. Up close they are spectacular almost vertical walls of stone, and grit, somehow held together.

Tomorrow I am off to climb a 4000M peak. Hopefully, weather permitting , tomorrow’s image will be from the summit or close to it

Thank you all for continuing to comment. I will get back to all your Posts when the holiday is over – which will happen all too fast.

About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'.
