If you dont know it,you forget it,because the turn-of from the motorway to Bolzano is really small,so is the sighn-board:""Villnoss tal-Val di Funes"".
Once in the extremely narrow valley,the world is changing into a peaceful dream(the world and livingplace of Rheinhold Messner).
The vieuw on the Dolomites is rarely seen more spectaculair then here,virtualy nobody around exept for some local farmers and cows working in the green fields.
Beeing there for the second time Im conviced,this is one of the most beautiful places in the world!

Hello Jan,

Great perspective, wonderful colors, excellent light and contrast!
Congratulations and TFS

Hi Jan,
Wow, what a majestic view! The Alps at Bolzano look great. The composition is really fine with the small village and church in the forground and the giant peaks in the background. Green tones are refreshing, very sharp and clear exposition. Well done, my friend! TFS.

Salut Jan.
Très belle carte postale présenté avec de splendides couleurs naturels.
Une belle référence pour le tourisme régional, bravo.
Bonne journée.

Hoi Jan,
Geef maar toe, dit is een anzichtkaart die je perfect gescanned hebt? :-)
Wat een beauty! schitterend hoe de Dolomiten er bij liggen, het groene dal.....al met al het knalt er weer af.

Hi Jan,

Impressive landscape shot! As you mentioned, the dolomite peaks are looking just great. I like the contrast between the rich-green fields and the mountains in the BG. The sharpness and the POV can't better than this. Wonderfully composed.

thanks and regards,
Paras Bhalla

Oh dear, this is a stunning landscape Jan. It could very well be a scene from 'The Sound of Music'. I have no suggestions for improvement. The image is flawless. Regards...

Another well composed landscape Jan,I like the greens of those meadows,great POV high enough to show us this piece of paradise. Those mountains look pretty daunting as far as having to climb them. I can understand why the famous climber R.Messner loved them.I think I'll wait a couple of hours before going to my busy downtown,will just enjoy this view instead:)


Hoi Jan,
Da's pas een uitzicht om van te genieten. Het schilderachtige dorpje met de perfect groene grasvelden is en genot om naar te kijken. Vooral als het zo prachtig is gelegen tegen deze super mooie bergen en rotsen.

Yes it's look like a postcard, very beautiful composition.
SO lovely view.
Perfect and perfect , a pleasure to see like a painting
I think about the books of "Heidi".
Zeer mooi werk van fotograaf

Excellent colors and contrast.

Nice lands cape,

Hi Jan,
I passed almost ten minutes in front of my monitor admiring this landscape! What a treasure!

Superb luminous composition ! The church in the middle of the burg, the bunches of trees, the verdant fields and the slopes of mountains lead our eyes towards the spectacular Dolomites!

What a great feeling you must have!

Woooowh Jan, wat een geweldige plaat. Ik kan er naar blíjven kijken ! Dat indrukwekkende gebergte (dolomieten?) en die prachtig groene voorgond. Je zou er maar wonen. Als die pastoor daar misschien ook niet al teveel te doen heeft kan ie altijd nog de hele dag van het uitzicht genieten LOL :)
Mijn complimenten, goed gezien en vastgelegd.

groetjes, willemien

Hoi Jan,

"In 't groene dal....in 't stille dal...."
Perfecte plaat; schitterende kleuren en alles staat op de juiste plaats!
Die Dolomieten op de achtergrond zien er toch heel anders uit dan de Oostenrijkse Alpen.

Groet uit Renesse,

Hi Jan, This is a very appealing photograph, well composed with the church tower in an ideal position. The Dolomites are maybe one of the most spectacular looking mountain ranges in the world, and you captured them well. I saw a documentaty on how the Alps were formed, so this adds another dimention. The clouds are well positioned also, as in a child's painting. TFS. Murray.

Hi Jan

I was just taking a look some of your photos of Italy when I saw this one, what a beautiful scene you have captured here.
Lovely composition with the view through this lush green countryside to the contrasting mountains behind and that perfect sky.

Regards Derek
