Matterhorn

To reach this place i I had to walk a little by small paths!
This could be better if i wait to the sunset but then i had to walk over 3/4km at night!

i understand the dilemma with waiting for sunset. I have the same problem over and over again when i`m in the mountains :-)

This would be epic during a nice sunset!

In this daylight and with the processing it appears a bit too cartoonish, if you know what i mean?

Anyway...take care, buddy!

Indeed catch the sunset in some places are complicated!
I need to do another processing to this one, improvements are needed!

Thanks mate :)

for exactly that same reason (wanting to shoot at sunset) I will be going into the pyrenees with a tent this summer :D

yes, alone.

Don't even get my mother started on that =p.

Ill be fine though. There's decent cell coverage, I have a signaling mirror and whistle, and will mostly stay on well walked paths.

17, will turn 18 on the trip.

Walking at night seems dangerous to me aswel. At least, when your walking significant distances.

Thanks to vertical capture the trees look little bit crooked :D . And pity that the sky did not look like it on the reflection in the mirror of water. That reflection looks much more natural than the sky.

I also must add i love this juicy view and love to be there :D .
