The Matterhorn (German: Matterhorn, Italian: Monte Cervino, French: Mont Cervin) is a mountain of the Alps, straddling the border between Switzerland and Italy. It is a huge and almost perfect pyramidal peak in the Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe. The Matterhorn has become an iconic emblem of the Swiss Alps and the Alps in general.

Thanks. It was as well a bit "breath taking" and very cold when I had to open the door of the plane to shoot the scene.

Happy you like the view.
We had to be fast with the plane to capture the proper angle as well as the sunset light.

Yes, this mountain is!
and the shooting was epic too.
Opening the door and then taking the photo was really challenging because of the very cold air.
