About that title... I thought about it for a while. Before we arrived in Zermatt I got asked a lot if I'm going to climb the Matterhorn because of all the mountain equipment I had brought with me. And every time I was warned that Switzerlands most iconc mountain is „crumbeling away“. So I did some research on the web and found out that the Matterhorn suffers of the consequences of climate change. The night I got to take this photograph I instantly knew that the title had to be something fitting this topic. As the clouds in this photograph were lit up in fiery orange, I decided to call it „Death by Fire“. Together with my cousin I waited a good while until the Milky Way finally became visible and later on blended these two exposures together.
