New on 500px : The colors of Matterhorn by ilhan1077 by ilhan1077

I would like to tell the story of this pictures to you my dear friends.there is just one hotel in motterhorn area which ı am staying.Even that the hotel is too far to reach suitable area for taking pic.You have to get a train to arrive to top on the mountain.But the sunset its about to 21.30,the last train is in 20.00 to turn back . I decided that ı will catch the sunset whatever it takes.I got a train , got top on the mountain and took my all beautiful shots but the time is almost midnight.No train,No car nothing for get back to hotel.I start to walk in down to mountain in the midnight.İt was cold and dark.Every step ı take ı was sinking in the mud. I didnt know until that time ,going downhill harder then uphill 🙂 . Thanks god my iphone with me.I used navigation and light.After 2 hours walk, I reached at my hotel.Now ı present to you full of adventure motterhorn pic.Than you will see it was worth everything.

This photo was taken when I was travelling at Switzerland, I stayed at 3100 Kulmhotel Gornergrat (Mont Rosa view) and I took this photo at my room. You can see the milkyway above the glacier and the snow mountain. However, this great scene only last for about one hour and the dawn came. Anyway, hope you enjoy.
