The Matterhorn at Night

While I’m still working on processing multiple deep-sky images as well as the new book, let’s take a brief detour to Switzerland.  My vacation to Zermatt was unfortunately timed with the full moon, so the skies were not as dark as I’d like, but the rising moon did nicely light up the east face.

I had hoped to capture the full moon with the mountain, but to get the right angle, I would have had to have hiked up in the mountains around 3 am. Needless to say, that did not happen.
