On A Wing And A Prayer (atop The Rothorn)
Photo By Steve Ember

  • Title: On A Wing And A Prayer (atop The Rothorn)
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Switzerland
  • Nearest Area: Canton Graubünden
  • Nearest Town: Lenzerheide
  • Brief Directions: Cable Car to Rothorn from Lenzerheide
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • Description: The photo was taken last October in late afternoon on a fine visibility autumn day, atop the Rothorn (2,865 meters/9,399 feet) in Canton Graubünden, Switzerland. I was happy to see the fellow on the bench, as he gave a nice scale to the view as well as the splash of color from his shirt. For a while, I assumed he was another photographer, enjoying the view and getting ready to do what I was doing…or perhaps a hiker taking a well deserved pause at close to 10,000 feet worth of altitude. But then, he began pulling something out of his rucksack – great, even more color accents for my shot, and – finally - it was clear what he has up to! Do you suppose he said a little prayer before launching?
