Summary Author: Stefano De Rosa
The photo above showing snow-covered Mount Cervino in a cobalt blue sky, reflecting in beautiful Lago Blu (Blue Lake), was snapped in the Pennine Alps on the border of Italy and Switzerland. Mount Cervino (14,690 ft or 4,478 m), better known outside Italy as the Matterhorn, is one of the highest peaks in the Alps. The easily recognized pyramid shape towers over Lago Blu (6,293 ft or 1,918 m) in the Aosta Valley of northwestern Italy. Crystal clear Lago Blu is fed by springs and surrounded by century-old larch trees. Photo taken on May 4, 2012.
