Stars over the Matterhorn, as a rising 10% moon illuminates the sky with pastel hues - as seen from Zermatt.  The camera's high sensitivity long exposure "sees" much more than what was visible to the naked eye; when I took this photo, I could barely even see the shape of the Matterhorn.

Dim moonlight, stars, and the Matterhorn.  This was taken after "Matterhorn Stars #1", and by then the very first light of dawn had brightened the sky quite a bit, though still barely perceptible with the naked eye.

  1. Wow. So cool. The Matterhorn is just such a spectacular mountain. It’s hard to imagine that I once climbed that ridge – the Hornligrat. Looks pretty gnar in your photos, which I’m sure it is in winter.

    1. Wow, you climbed that? Sweeeet!!! I got some killer close-up shots of the Matterhorn & Hornligrat ridge later today from up at Riffelalp… I’ll post those soon.

      Such a spectacular mountain indeed! It’s a mountain sculpture.

  2. Great shots, Jack…really love that second one. What a ridge? This mountain is on my life list to climb and these shots make it all the more tempting.

    1. Thanks Justin! For me, on the other hand, this is one of those mountains that is clearly saying to me – “I’m meant to be admired from afar… not climbed by you!” 🙂
