The clouds on the mountainside almost appear as smoke billowng forth, perhaps the Monastery is being punished for some infraction! It seems almost odd here in summer, it looks as thought ethe building is set high for several reasons but one may be for teh depth of snow in the wintertime. The mood here, with the clouds and tones is quite magnetic and compelling I think, Maria. What a beautiful building and just the entire scene is so detailed and pure....Wonderful!

this fog on the hills seems very familiar! the church looks a bit more "exotic", however! a wonderful ensemble!
