Picture of the Day: Cabin on the Matterhorn
A beautiful view of the Swiss landscape with a cabin in the foreground and the mighty Matterhorn looming in the background. What a view! The photograph was taken by Juan Rubiano, who says this photo was not retouched or ‘enhanced’ in Photoshop and that it isn’t HDR; just a straight out-of-camera shot that shows just how incredible this landscape truly is.
The Matterhorn (German), Monte Cervino (Italian) or Mont Cervin (French), is a mountain in the Pennine Alps on the border between Switzerland and Italy. Its summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest peaks in the Alps. The mountain overlooks the town of Zermatt in the canton of Valais to the north-east and Breuil-Cervinia in the Aosta Valley to the south. Theodul Pass, located at the eastern base of the peak, is the lowest passage between its north and south side. [source]
