    I agree with "WOW" ...
    That scene is so inviting - some photogs do that for me ...
    Just set it as my desktop image ... a much bigger "wow" on my 19" flat panel LCD screen.

    Yes, it has a *take your breath away* kind of quality. I just stumbled upon it whilst doing some casual *surfing on the worldwide reticular*. Kudos to whoever took the shot. J.P. I'm sure that your interpretation of it on canvas will be quite captivating.

    That is a lovely picture. It reminds me of home. I have this one I ran
    across. I had a good cry when I saw it. I've just got to share it.

    My favorite town on the Baltic Island of Gotland - Yes, the Police station there is affectionately called *Gotland Yard*:

    Hi Ms. Margaret,

    Gotland, with its 3145.45 square kilometer area has 92 churches dating from the 9th-13th century. It is also known as *kalkstenshawaii* - loosely transliterated as calcium stone hawaii, since the climate there is more moderate than the Swedish mainland - A good summer on Gotland can be like in the Mediterranean.

    Cheers,

    CD

    Yes this is a great photo!!! Does anyone notice the face in the mountain? Look to the left of the steeple at the mountain peak just before the dip on the ridge. It is lit by the sun...kind of looks like an older womans face.
    I wish You Peace
