The story behind the image

We did a short break for skiing. This was a first for us, because Petra is into downhill skiing, while I used to be an avid cross country skier at the time. Well, it turned out to be a very nice trip. We selected the peaceful village of Seefeld in Austria, the former Olympic town, which offers 260+ km of slopes and a number of alpine tracks as well, most of them marked blue or red.

One morning I took my small Sony digital camera to take a few snapshots. This church was so beautiful as it stood there, isolated from the buzz in the village. It’s just sad that I did not bring my big camera. Then again, I could not have taken the big body on a cross-country track. So, the ‘high resolution photo’ is more like a low resolution photo by today’s standards. Still, it’s a nice photo.
