My second image from my recent trip with Simon Roppel through the Swiss Alps. This was taken in the morning after spending two nights up at the Monte Rosa Hutte which is one of most incredible places I’ve ever been. It’s like a futuristic Hotel in the midst of an incredible mountain range that you can only get to by hiking over a glacier. Whew! We got up before dawn to make our rocky descent down to this location that features a beautiful lake. Unfortunately the lake doesn’t face the mountain so you can’t really get a shot of it with the Matterhorn. However, there is this nice little stream that I decided to make use of.
If there’s one thing this that this workshop has reinforced for me, it’s that not every sunrise/sunset has to have wild, amazing colors (though we did get some of those as well). Sometimes the more tame mornings can be just as beautiful as they feature a quieter, more peaceful mood.

Daar sta je dan🏔
Wat een prachtig uitzicht! als je uit de trein komt vanuit Zermatt
Ongelofelijk, hoe mooi.
Goed geregeld in Zwitserland 👍 de vele richting aanwijs bordjes voor wandelaars en mountainbikers. We twijfelen, welke richting zullen we toch kiezen?
Ff overleggen , we zijn eruit, we pakken de route rechtsom, wat later bleek , de langste route 😓 pfff en dat met deze hitte ☀️
Onder de indruk van al het moois om ons heen besef je maar weer hoe goed we t hebben en wat een boffers we zijn om dit te kunnen en mogen meemaken 😊
My first image from my recent trip with @simonroppel_photography
! Actually it was the last image I took on the final morning of the trip after 8 days of hiking over glaciers, staying in rustic to futuristic mountain huts, meeting great people and seeing amazing sights. While this image doesn’t feature incredible mountains, glaciers or views, it was just too beautiful and peaceful not to photograph despite almost missing breakfast!
I have a bunch more images from this trip that I’ll be posting over the next few weeks but this is the first one I finished so here it is!
