Being in a village like this where there is no traffic jam, or crowds has been a good feeling. I miss that kind of situation. I really like the view of the mountains on the BG. the church has a lots of details and will make a great picture of it's own. Make a great b/w too IMO


was für eine tolle alte kirche! :-) perfekter blickwinkel und schöne komposition mit den hohen
bergen im hintergrund und viel grün drumherum. well done & viele grüße, thor.

Good composition, sharp and colorful.
The church seems to be set in the curving slopes of the mountain, making it a very intersting shot.

Hi Achim,
Beautiful mountain scene, the old building looks to have been there for ever.
I'm sure it will last for evermore too, well seen.

You have been in so many countries.... I have to find out where Andorra is. Germany? A very interesting place... with a lot of stones! Great composition with beautiful colors. TFS


Hello Achim,
This fine old church melts in well with the surrounding nature, as the building materials were taken right from the ground!
Interesting architecture, and I notice they had to build in the slope...
A pleasant composition with good details!
