Gornergrat, Valais, Switzerland

Probably one of the most frequently photographed landscapes in Switzerland. The shot captures good 200 degrees and is composed of 8 shots in landscape format.

From left to right: Monte Rosa with Dufourspitze, Liskamm, Castor, Pollux, Breithorn, Matterhorn, Dent Blanche, Ober Gabelhorn, Wellenkuppe, Zinalrothorn, Weisshorn and Mischabellgruppe with Dom.

Usually the plaform is packed with tourists in colorful outfits from all over the world. I wanted the shot without tourists to allow for an undistrubed view on the mountains. So I took a very early train up and while the other tourists got their briefing at the train station, I ran up the hill to the platform, put my tripod in place and took the shots. I was done when they finally arrived …
