The Matterhorn shrouded by clouds
This picture is of the Matterhorn, the famous mountain that overlooks Zermatt, Switzerland. I was walking back to my hotel from the main streets of Zermatt as the clouds around the Matterhorn began to disperse. I was only going to be there for the weekend and the weather forecast was saying that it was going to be cloudy the whole time. I was worried I would not be able to see the Matterhorn, which was the whole reason I had traveled to Zermatt. However, when the clouds started to break, I quickly took out my camera and took as many pictures as possible, not knowing if the weather would be good the next day.
