Switzerland: best time of day for mountain top view pictures?

Jump to last reply

Hello,
I'm travelling to Switzerland next year in august/september.
I need some tips on when (what time of day) to go on top of a mountain to have the best pictures.
I think you all know the problem you end up at the top of the mountain after a long trip and then you notice that the pictures you want to take are rubbish because the sun is in the wrong direction. So if you can give me some tips about the following places ... it would me much appreciated.
This is where I will go:
- Niederhorn: i would love some clear pics with lake thun on them
- Jungfraujoch: best time for views of the aletsch glacier?
- Schlithorn
- Matterhorn Paradise
- Gornergrat railway
Thanks for the assistance ;-)
Jurgen
