Matterhorn at sunrise. This view doesn't present itself very often due to clouds and weather in the area. I was fortunate to witness the the peak without clouds just as the sun came up.  This view only lasted ten minutes, so it was worth getting up at 4:30 am. When I got to the bridge while it was still dark, there were about 15 people there, and I was able to stake out a good spot on the bridge. By the time the sun came up, there were at least 150 all trying to capture the same view. 

This was taken on a 2 hour walk down the moutain from the Matterhorn to Zermatt. Incredible views all the way down.
