Caption: Photograph taken from space of the Swiss Alps. Near the top of the picture is Lake Geneva, fed by the river Rhone, which first passes through a deeply glaciated valley running downwards across the picture towards the right. To the left of the sharp bend in the Rhone as it turns towards the lake is a snow-covered range rising to Mont Blanc, 4,837 m high. South of Mont Blanc is the deep Val d'Aosta, leading to the St Bernard Pass from Italy. The Matterhorn is to the right of it, near the centre of the picture.`
