Really stunning photographs, the wide angle shots are especially impacting! These remind me a bit of taking a pleasure flight over the Matterhorn a few years back, my first ever helicopter flight. Whereabouts were these taken, near the Aletsch Glacier?

Cheers, Huw :smile:

Hi,

The race starts from Zermatt and goes through the Pennines Alps to Verbier, about 53 km long and 4000 meters height difference. The best team did it in about six and an half hour, great performance !

Thanks for the nice comment
