The summit of one of Europe's tallest mountains glows like the flame of a candle as the sun rises on a clear morning. The Matterhorn, famous for appearing on bars of Toblerone chocolate bars, reflects the vivid orange light at 5.37am.
It even creates a spectacular symmetrical image in a tranquil lake which perfectly mirrors the giant 14,692 ft high mountain. The huge peak can be seen from both Italy and Switzerland as it sits on the border between the two countries. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
