Weekly Photo Challenge – Grand

7 Dec

This week’s weekly photo challenge is to share an image of something “Grand”. But the idea is to not just share an image of a large object / scene, but have a special element or a “wow factor” that makes the picture truly stunning. And for this topic, I decided to share pictures of the majestic “Matterhorn” that we visited from Zermatt in Switzerland. The Matterhorn is one of highest and the most photographed peaks in Europe and a spectacular sight. We saw it from many points and I am sharing some of these sights with you –

  • From Gornergrat – This picture is my favorite from the trip and was clicked around sunset from Gornergrat. This image was special as the Matterhorn had been hidden by clouds and mist the whole day, and just when we thought that we will not get a good image, the clouds cleared and we got this gorgeous view and image. I also love this fence that adds another beautiful element and geometry to this pic.
