Very beautiful, Jan! Don't you just hate power lines some days? #565547

Allan L. Whitehead 5/29/2004 4:27:35 AM

Wonderful capture and presentation, Jan, I love this. The effects are magnificent. Have a terrific holiday week-end, my very dear friend - your good friend, Allan #565551

Gianna Stadelmyer 5/29/2004 4:27:59 AM

Thanks, Karen and Carolyn! Yes, I do hate power lines some days....and they are horrendous here. You think of Switzerland as scenic mountain views and farmland, but everywhere you look are above ground power lines and HUNDREDS upon HUNDREDS of tram-line wires cutting through the cities and countryside alike. Very frustrating from a photographic standpoint! Thank goodness for PSP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-) #565553

Kenton L. Elliott 5/29/2004 4:28:09 AM

Sorry, Allan, must've crossed in cyberspace as I ranted about power lines! LOL! Thank you as always for your most wonderful comment and support. You have a fabulous holiday weekend too....hopefully full of nice weather, yummy bbq's and lots of photo ops:-) #565557

Thank you so very much everyone! When I passed this chapel in the car, I just knew I had to get a photo of it, so I pulled over and ran back in the cold to get a couple of shots. I just loved the atmosphere it had and how it was situated on the hill:-) #599092
