St. Bartholomew's Church (Berchtesgaden, 2008)
St. Bartholomä is a Catholic pilgrimage church in the Berchtesgaden District of Bavaria. It named for St. Bartholomew (Bartholomäus in German).
The church is located on the western edge of the Königssee (King's Lake) on the peninsula of Hirschau. It can only be reached by ship or after a long hike. The chapel originated in part in the 12th century. Since the 16th century it has been in the baroque style. St. Bartholomew is said to be the protector of alpine farmers and of milkmaids. St. Bartholomä has two onion domes and a red domed roof. The floor plan is based on that of the Salzburg Cathedral. The church features stucco work by the Salzburg artist Josef Schmidt and a three-apse quire. The altars in the apses are consecrated to St. Bartholomew, St. Catherine, and St. James respectively.

What a great setting! You've captured it well and kept the mountains in the background in balance to enhance the church and not distract you from it. A great photo.

wonderful colour palette (trees, church, mountains), interesting composition! I like the reflection in the water... and the mountains slightly in the haze.
