Matterhorn Sunrise

A few days after the Zermatt Photowalk of +Swiss Photography Club G+, Daniel Arndt and me climbed Mount Täschhorn, 4’491m. Starting before sunrise, the alpinist photographer has the pleasure to catch first light first.

This photo was made at 5:57 am while climbing the SE-ridge of Täschhorn. Hope you like it, and don’t miss all the wonderful matterhorn photos made at the Zermatt photowalk by my fellow photographers!

  1. Fantastic view Wilfried, my friend! That&39;s the privilege of the climber! 🙂
    This sunday I was on 3.360m Hochalmspitze.

  2. Matterhorn is mountain of dreams for me. I am a lucky person to see current a magnificent view…Thank you Wilfried!!

  3. always pleasure to check some great photos from you Wilfried Haferland  🙂
    yes, hope to see you soon!
    yes, it was lots of fun last weekend, I can still feel my legs after so much hiking :-))

  4. Wilfried Haferland I think the matterhorn has always been over photographed – it&39;s so iconic that no one can resist making a snap.  But it&39;s always a joy to see it photographed well like this my dear. 😉

  5. Dalibor Pačić – Every long tour is hard for it&39;s own… We selected a rather uncommon way down via a blank ice glacier and a nice serac zone. Took some time to find through the labyrith… We arrived in Saas Fee at midnight. But it was fun, as you know well! 🙂

  6. yes, I know them :-)) Wilfried Haferland 
    I would like to go with you once climbing, maybe we could arrange something. 🙂 but I don&39;t know how will I react on such high altitude :-/
    On Sunday we didn&39;t want to go back the same way form the peak, but to make circle tour – and we end up on one part where the glacier melted down for more then 30 meters. We had only "guide" rope of 30m, and we needed one of 60m – then we waited for some guys which we saw coming in the ridge to ask for a rope – and we managed to descend. otherwise… very tricky :-))

  7. Dalibor Pačić – Oh yeah, this is really what makes circle trips and traverses so interesting… you never know what&39;s waiting for you 🙂 You get used to the altitude. If you will have done Nadelhorn, you&39;re fine ;-)!

    Not sure if we can arrange a tour while you are in CH, but a meeting is mandatory! Looking forward!

  8. I love the changing colour tones and the view is spectacular. Thanks for showing me a part of the world I probably will never get to see first hand mate. :)))

  9. This beautiful photo has such a magical look and feel to it Wilfried Haferland! The glowing clouds have cast such a soft and lovely light upon this world renowned peak! Well done my talented friend!

  10. Welcome back my friend 😉
    now please start to share with us again … I&39;m really interested to see what you got …

  11. yes, a magical sunrise! What more can one ask for? You see this you see magic unfolding under your very eyes!….
