Matterhorn on Lake Riffelsee
Posted on 13 Nov 2013 ©2013 Debashis Paul Photography
Riffelsee is an alpine lake above the town of Zermatt in the canton of Valais, Switzerland. It lies below the Riffelhorn at an elevation of 2757 mt. This was my third time to Zermatt. I put my alarm @5 O’clock morning. Destination Riffelsee and origin Geneva. Took early train from Geneva and the first train to Gornergrat. The weather was not good and it was not a great day for me as I thought to capture the shot during sunrise. Unfortunately I haven’t checked the weather I started and that’s my Bad! So finally get down at Rotenboden train station and had a medium difficulty hike till I reach to target. The gloomy and overcast weather somehow helped to get perfect reflection to lake Riffelsee and I am glad that it was not a bad trip altogether before my days end after numerous shots from Gornergrat.
