I love how the lines of the trees mimic the line of the steeple. Such a beautiful area!

@Don Smith: Thanks Don, I'm surprised you can see those lines on the steeple in this small size image, I personally cannot.. My eyes are not that good, already a known fact to me...

Denny Jump Photo from Easton, PA, United States

Don beat me to the punch but I quite agree with him...the trees compliment the steeple so beautifully. In fact I really love how you have framed up this entire shot, Maria! The church and village sitting there in the valley with the mountains rising on the sides and back, topped off by just enough of the sky and clouds. The variety of colors, the light, the shade, everything works in just a lovely harmonious way here! I cannot imageine how this could be anything other than a great thrill and pleasure for you to compose and capture these images...I would be shaking like a leaf purely from pleasure and excitement to be there!! Just beautiful, Maria!!
