Of course it is beautiful! Of course it is well captured! Of course I love it! But...I stop to think what happens in winter (?) I don't think the coziness goes that far, does it?!

@Japanalia: yes, it does...these people are amazing...Judy seems to agree.... Anyway, aside from what Judy wrote, I want to say that I stayed at a farmhouse for 3 days, just 15 km (or so) from this spot...a house that looked pretty much like any of these, and I have to tell you, those people impressed me so much...with their hard work, their hospitality, and their personalities... If I'll ever visit this area again, I'll definitely stay there again...and I really hope one time it will be in the Winter.... Thanks Gabriela!

Another gorgeous presentation, Maria. This quaint little village reminds me so of the Tyrol in Austria. Such self-sufficient and hard-working people who do their work by the seasons and are always ready for whatever weather comes along. I would LOVE to see this dressed in winter's white, and every chimney belching smoke!

@Judy aka L@dybug: me too....:) could look like Wonderland Thanks Judy! Yes, many similar place in Tyrol also...and pretty much that entire area

Another superb vue! My maternal grandfather stayed in a sanatorium in Berchtesgaden and died there during WWII. I now understand why he went there...such scenery and fresh air would have been good for his soul in his last days! regards, :O)

owned by another Maria? you shouls be the owner of such a village or at least one house there... I'm sure that then there would be plenty of cows in the frame...

20 Oct 2011 11:51am

@Yair Karelic: I think it was too early for the cows to be outside...I assume that usually there are already many of them Thanks Yair
