Wowsa. This is one of my favorite b&w images I have seen. Camping in that cabin would be a dream come true. I love the contrast, as so many have said!

Thanks Jonesy. And if you want it that badly, just go for it! Zermatt, Switserland

great shot! can you tell me the exact location of this cabin?
RubenB
RubenB January 19, 2017
Thanks Woodstock . The exact location? That's rather difficult. I don't have GPS coördinates on my camera. I just remember it's close to Zermatt and to the west.

dmmacdonald January 19, 2017
Magnificent study of one of the most majestic views I've ever seen. Somehow in Zermatt the Matterhorn doesn't immediately strike you as being the height and grandeur it really is - but get out into the landscape and you're surprised by it at every turn. You have brilliantly captured it - (would be my winner in the Majestic Mountains Contest by miles !!!)
RubenB
RubenB January 19, 2017
Thank you so much dmmacdonald! I appreciate this a lot. You've made my day :-)

excelent compo, maybe the snowparts in the sun are a bit burnt out But I love it
RubenB
RubenB April 11, 2017
Thanks Kawaracer. The highlights in the sun are close to burnt out, but are not. If I lowered the brightness on these parts, the magic was lost. So I kept them in :-)
