Photograph St. Johann Church

Added by Jason Hatfield

A beautiful 18th-century church surrounded by a grassy meadow, massive forest, and towering peaks.

This small church sits in a cow pasture just outside of Puez-Geisler Nature Park. The church is next to a hotel, making parking and visiting a little easier. To get the best vantage point of the church and mountains, walk down the road and shoot through the fence. The mountains are fairly luminous, so you'll want to bracket your shots.

A stunning chapel in a beautiful place

This little chapel in the Funes valley is incredibly beautiful, and a wonderful place to photograph if you're in the area (which I highly recommend). The last years there are now fences so you can't leave the footpath as more tourists are not respecting the farmers land, but it's still a wonderful spot to visit with the stunning Odle group in the background.
