WEISSHORN

The Weisshorn (German, lit. White Peak) is a mountain in the Pennine Alps, in Switzerland. With its 4,506 m (14,783 ft) summit, it is one of the major peaks in the Alps and overtops the nearby Matterhorn by some 30 metres. It was first climbed in 1861 from Randa by John Tyndall, accompanied by the guides J.J. Bennen and Ulrich Wenger.

In April and May 1991, two consecutive rockslides took place from a cliff above the town of Randa on the east side of the massif.

Geology:
The mountain is composed of gneisses; the west face is also composed of sedimentary rocks from the cretaceous period. (Wikipedia)

This picture has been taken from the Moosalp on 2000m, where you can see already a little bit of snow on the ground.

What a delight to see your mountain pictures again, Anne!
This is a first-rate capture of these lovely peaks on a clear and sunny day in October with early snow in the foreground.
A superb composition again.

Bonjour Anne,
A crisp morning has allowed for a beautiful clear image of this spectacular peak. You could call this "The Wall" with its mighty steep face.
Thanks for the scene from Switzerland's best...

Mais trêve de plaisanterie : Ta photo de ce massif est remarquable, elle fait ressortir la pureté de l'air, et le relief de façon incroyable
