The noblest peak in Europe, Monte Cervino or Matterhorn, seen from an almost unique view - from the 4436 meters of the Punta Parrot or Parrotspitze, on the Monte Rosa Massif.

The picture shows the very first rays of light coming from east and, on the very left, the northern walls of the powerful Lyskamms. Unseen but just under the lower side of the photo there is the great gate of the Grenzgletscher, falling down towards the Gornergleitscher and Zermatt.

Taken on September 1st, 2013.

This picture is dedicated to my good friend Audrey, for yesterday.
