Gornergrat Glacier

It's an October afternoon in 2011 on the Gornergrat, in the Valais Alps of Switzerland. The weather has been sunny, crisp, and clear on each of the three days the cameras and I have made the KulmHotel 3100 our high altitude eyrie, high above Zermatt...even higher above the Rhône Valley.

Most of my shooting on this splendid afternoon was digital, but the film cameras were most definitely active
participants in the high altitude sunshine. The trusty Nikon FM was loaded with a freezer-stashed roll of the lovely
fine-grained Agfa APX-25. It was looking out over this magnificent glacier at 10,000+ feet through a red 25 filter.
