Entry Description

This year I spent my winter holidays with my family at Zermatt ski resort. Zermatt is a small picturesque town located at the foot of the Matterhorn. The entire town is a car-free zone. Almost all vehicles in Zermatt are battery driven and completely silent. There are number of places with the amazing view of Zermatt and Matterhorn, but most of these places are rather difficult to access. To reach this stunning view point I had to hike up the ski slope in the dead of the night for 20 minutes and then climb down off the slope to mount my tripod on the only one tiny level platform.

About Photographer

I am project manager in software development company Parallels. At Parallels I am working on such cool products as Parallels Desktop for Mac and Parallels Access. Also I am city skyline and landscape photographer. I fell in love with photography when I bought my first digital camera Canon 5d Mark II back in 2011. I love to travel and discover cities and landscapes through the lens of my camera. I am always exited about history of our civilization and I am trying to show historical depth and unity of ancient and modern cultural layers in my urban photos. I love different weather conditions such as rain, storm, fog, snow for its ability to miraculously change the mood of the city and bring out wonderful light.
