Mountains attract drama. Mountains are also cloud magnets. The higher the mountain, the greater the drama.
This is the Almagellhorn (10,815ft) in the Saas Fee valley, Valais Alps, Switzerland. Not a particularly important mountain, and small in comparison to the ring of 4,000M peaks that are a feature of this valley. But after rain, as the temperature rises, the clouds boil off peaks like this, creating extraordinary sights.
By the time this is published, I will be on my way to Saas Fee and this mountain will be a daily companion for the next few days. Watch out for posts from the area in the days to come.
