Apologies to those people who went to view this image previously only to find that it had vanished. I’ve been having problems getting files to load properly on RB (nowhere else) and so had to delete images when things went wrong.

This is the bell tower of the tiny Chapel at the summit of the Giau Pass, near Cortina d’Ampezzo in the Italian Dolomites. Behind the tower is the conical peak of Ra Gusela and in the far back left, we can see the rifugio at the summit of Nuvolau.

    I did look for this but couldn’t view it earlier; so happy it finally uploaded. This is such a majestic view. I love the way the church steeple mirrors the mountain pointing heavenward to the Source, the Origin of all things. And as always, I’m fascinated by those blue blue skies of Italy. One of these days, I may be blessed enough to see and touch these wondrous places. Thank you for sharing them in such glorious fashion.

  • Thank you Bonnie, you’re too kind! I believe it is sometimes intentional for the architecture on these little churches to mimic the mountains. These buildings so compliment their surroundings and the scenery around them is quite heavenly, literally! ;o)
