...and the beautiful church therein, taken in 1998.
Sadly I don't have my notes, but it may be near Matrei in Osttirol.

We sleep, but the loom of life never stops and the
pattern which was weaving when the sun went down
is weaving when it comes up tomorrow.

Excellent shot, very much reminds me of some of the beauties made by Maria Draper :-)

@Curly: Wow, there could be no finer compliment, Curly ... I'd surely love to go back with a better camera than I had back then. It's difficult to take a poor photo in some of these places. ;D

This is beautiful especially the disappearing trees, I love the mood and atmosphere. If I were you then, I'd love to be exploring that hilly terrain :D

@Abena: Sadly we didn't have the opportunity to hike the mountains, nor could I have done that, but just viewing the scenery and absorbing the beauty was a miracle in itself. ;D
