The light had a softness to it and a thin veil of mist hung over the Findeln valley. And when I say early – this was ten in the morning – not early by many people’s standards.
For those who know the area, or may have seen previous images of this area in my blog entries, the view is of: Alphubel (Lt edge – flat topped), Allalinhorn (reduced to a pimple), Rimpfischhorn (the dark fin), Strahlhorn with the Adlerhorn (black thimble on its Rt ridge). The image finishes at Rt edge with the top winter lift station of Hohtälli. If you view an enlargement of this image, you will see the tall pylon on the skyline marking the trajectory of the large Cable-car gondola that carries skiers from low in the Findeln valley to that high summit. And this image comprises a small section of the total panorama. Turn through 180degress and you face the Matterhorn – more of that another day.
