(Crosses fingers that Photobucket's resizer actually worked)
This is a small church near the community of Navajo Dam on the San Juan River, below Navajo Reservoir. This section of the river is world renowned (or so they say) for its fly fishing.
This picture is beautiful because the church looks like it is being snuggled by the earth.

Thanks. It's actually on the middle of a little sort of plain in the river valley. Theres a small cemetary behind it, and just a bit to the left is an oil well, that I was luckily able to miss with this angle (was driving in a car). My neighbor and I had just come back from a trip to the lake to go salmon snagging. We live about 10 miles from here.

No special story - just a nice place (at 50°18'18.32"N 16°27'8.85"E) that we visited two years ago on our way back from Prague. Highly recommended if you look for something nice, quiet and picturesque in not too high monutains.

It's a nice place. Pretty church. The scenery reminds me of Oregon.

Was that a cool day you took this picture? I feel like I could just breath in the freshness. Makes me think of the 19th hole for holy golfers.
Who keeps up that lawn? Goodness!
And makes a nice screen saver too, thank you. :)

It was relatively warm and nice day, something in the 20-25 deg C range. But it is 700 meteres above sea level and you can feel it.

Is it somewhere close to your place? I remember you posted pictures of some other church in your area last year.

Hello, it has been a while since my last entry, I would like to say -due to recent events- that I wish peace to the Palestinian people and all people around the world to live in peace.

Wolram, WOW that is a great picture. I can just imagine the stories that could be told using that old church as a backdrop.

It is within walking distance, and is believed to have links with the Knights templar, unfortunatly it is kept locked, inside there are 12th/13th cenury wall paintings.

Sure, I would love some clear blue sky behind the minarets.
But this was not to be. Winter 1984 Istanbul.

Alanany Mosque- Jeddah.
This is the San Xavier del bac Mission near Tucson. It was built by Franciscans between 1783 and 1797. There were only two of them so they must have had a lot of help from the local native Americans. No one knows why the second tower was never finished.
