In the shadow of the Matterhorn

@explorewithjoshua

AS A PHOTOGRAPHER I’ve always been drawn to mountain landscapes, as they provide the ideal dramatic background for a picture. Mountains also appeal to me purely as a travel experience: there’s something about how they make you feel small and yet also signiicant, in that moment, that really enjoy. That’s what prompted me to photograph the Matterhorn during two different seasons. There are perhaps two or three lakes around the mountain where you can see its relection in the water, and this is one of them: Stellisee near Zermatt. For the whole of the trip I took in summer was chasing the sort of light you can see here, and the way one face of the mountain is lit up in the sunrise. I used a tripod to take the picture; that’s me you can see in the shot.
