    Amazing Matterhorn Sunset

    Hi...This is one more from my 2010 trip to the Alps. Another classic shot of the Matterhorn from the Riffelsee lake, this is from a little lake just below the main one actually. I walk up from Zermatt with my kit and stayed the night by this lake, I was hopeing to get a shot of the first rays of the sun on the matterhorn but was lucky to get an amazeing sunset as well.

    Mark,
    does it for me.
    Please tell me you used some PP to get this result? If I'm looking at a picture as shot, I'm so jealous.
    Anyhow, however it was produced it's a great picture.
    Well done, from a very jealous JPS

    John...The dynamic range was way too high to get in one shot so I took three exposures. I then blended them using Luminosity masks in PS CS5.

    I had no idea that a view like that of the Matterhorn was available. Stunning. Nice PP.

    As opposed to the comment above - I generally don't like sunset shots because many of them are boring-boring. However, this shot takes my breath away. Congratulations on knowing where and what you wanted to shoot and for being there at sunset! That shot would make any hike worthwhile!
