Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mountains


While I have lots of photographs of mountains (look at my posts from earlier this week), I thought I’d post an older picture that I took about 5 years ago.  It is of one of the most famous mountains in the world – the Matterhorn, in Zermatt, Switzerland.  I took this from a deck of an outdoor cafe after a fine day of skiing.  Hope you enjoy.
