Many thanks for all your comments on my last upload all very much appreciated.

Also special thanks you to the following who took the time to award the image on of their UAs:
Phillip Miinis, Desilver, Puckyfilly, TrevBAtWCC, Danny, Saltireblue and Photo Lee, very much appreciated.

I finally scratch a 7 year itch and went skiing again, I can't quite beleive that it was 7 years since the last time we went considering it was my sport for many years, but as it like riding a bike, you don't forget how to do it. Wink

So here is the view across the Aosta valley to the Matterhorn (Monte Cervino or Mont Cervin) ,with Mont Collen on the leftside, the setting sun just catching the tops of the peaks.

Thanks for looking.

Regards Richard

Seldom se the Matterhorn other than from the Zermatt side so this is a first for me: what an experience, and what a superb mountain vista.

Silence and light. Yes.
That funny little peak off to the right is very intriguing.
For mountain photography, check out website of Peter Leeming . Friend of mine, and one of the good guys. You won't be disappointed.
