just catching up polona... you've posted many beautiful and evocative photos here, in a wide range of styles and compositions... well done indeed :-))

hope to be around more regularly in the future, i'm rather distracted at the moment though...

keep well...

thank you everyone.

the chapel has a history but the inside is unavailable must of the time.
it is dedicated to about 300 russian POWs who lost their lives in an avelanche during the winter 1915/16, building a road across a mountain pass for the austrian troups in WW1. the remaining prisoners first built the chapel and it has been maintained and restored up till today.

Splendid symmetry, a lot of levels, beautiful colours, most excellent frame, a lot of details a lot of information, most excellent work!
