Range of Light by davidrichterphoto Range of Light by davidrichterphoto
I recently returned from a 5-day backpacking trip around Zermatt in the Valais Alps of Switzerland. The area close to the Italian border is THE summer eldorado for climbers and skiers with the highest located summer skiing region in the Alps.

The valley above Zermatt is dominated by the famous Matterhorn; probably the most recognized mountain in the world but Zermatt offers more than that and is surrounded by 38 4,000m (13,123+ft.) peaks. Some of which are seen here on the one colorful sunset I witnessed from an opposing ridge.

The peaks (from right to left) show the Täschhorn, Dom and Hohbärghorn, illuminated by the light show caused by a small window in the otherwise rainy sky.
