The alp Prabello is without a doubt one of the most bucolic corners of Valmalenco. Prabello, that beautiful lawn, never been more appropriate name. Modeled after the ancient icy Bernina Steps and separated from the broader Campagneda from the rocky spur of the "déent" alp is called locally "prabèl" and consists of a group of huts, the cùurt, from the shelter Cristina and a church. The refuge Cristina, called the "Cristina", was built in 1922, at an altitude of 2287 meters, in the splendid setting of the lace Steps, by Ersilio Bricalli, Caspoggio, and was named to his wife. The church (Jesus de prabèl) was built first, in 1919, immediately after the end of the First World War, the parish priest of Caspoggio, Don Giovanni Gatti, and dedicated to Our Lady Queen of Peace, to celebrate, of course, peace restored after the bloody conflict. It is located in a slightly elevated position, to the west of the group of huts, with material transported entirely on the shoulders of Caspoggio (which is about 15 km from here), with a vertical drop of almost m. 1,200.

Impressive Alp Prabello scene with the rock shelter in the foreground, then the craggy immense Alps backdrop, and all in excellent resolution.
We have similar rock shelters for mountain visitors in our western mountains.
Thanks for sharing,

Une jolie photo de cette chapelle perdue au milieu des montagnes enneigées. Pour en profiter il faut monter et gagner des indulgences ...
Amitiés et bonne journée.

A great capture of this majestic Alpine landscape. The snow covered peak rising in the background makes a very imposing focal point. Ideally exposed with very good colours and clarity.

We are really up among the clouds here! A very interesting view of the chapel and the impressive mountains. The inclusion of a person clearly improves the value of the capture.

Hello friend Silvio.
Awesome place, captured the solvency giving your good work, this rugged landscape with mountains, where the snow still remains is wonderful, the small chapel, is a delightful touch.
Very well balanced lighting and very good sharpness.
The range of color is good.
Well done. I love it.
Wish you a very nice week.

A chapel with a view! I can't imagine any more beautifully situated chapel, and you have placed it perfectly in your composition. I love the grass partially covering the rocks in the foreground and the magnificent view of the snow-covered mountains. Absolutely beautiful.

Quelle chapelle de pierre tout au sommet de la montagne avec la bue sur ces sommet et la neige éternelle superbe vue et panorama.
Bravo et amitié

Awesome high alpine landscape. That little chapel is well placed on the frame and is in harmony with nature. The mountain with plenty of snow looks majestic. I also like the clouds. Some in front and others behind the mountain make a nice 3D effect.

bellissimo paesaggio alpino, sembra selvatico ed assolutamente affascinante. Mi piace molto la tua composizione con la chiesa sulla parte destra ma ben integrata nello scenario grande. E' intrigante ed attraente il contrasto fra la cima verde in primo piano e quella imponente nello sfondo, dove roccie e neve creano dei motivi meravigliosi. La luce e la definizione dei colori sono magnifiche. Mi piace molto anche il ruolo delle nuvole, specialmente quelle che stanno passando fra il nostro punto di vista e la montagna. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona serata,

What a scene.... this struck me the moment I opened the gallery, the immense raw power of the landscape combined with the rather delicate beauty of this church is such a strong contrast, and yet these two elements sit together in perfect harmony. Colors, light and composition are all superbly done.
Really nice photo Silvio, thanks for sharing
asajernigan (21427) 2014-07-21 11:54
What a wonderful place for a church! Your placement of the church works well allowing us to see the great mountain scenery as well. The snow capped mountain provides a great backdrop for this scene. The lighting is great and the photo has fine color and sharpness.

Hello dear Silvio,

Very nice capture with perfect pov and layout.
TFS and best regards

non conoscevo questa località, ma la foto parla molto chiaro, credo che siano molti di più quelli peggiori di quelli migliori.
Gran bello scatto, giornata ideale, luce e nuvole fanno risplendere il paesaggio.

Hi silvio, Wonderful colors and details. I like so much the impressive blue tones in the BG and the snow also add to its interest too. The cute church is lovely and the man breaks the silence of the area. Best regards

A beautiful Alpine view, Silvio.
The high summit still with snow patchs, but I red the snow levels in summer are lower this years, all around the mountains.
Impressive nature's pic., well collec5ted.

Nice composition of this magnificent mountain scenery. Sure had to be a magnificent view. A year of these I have to go see for myself these Italian Alps ... Thanks for sharing.

thanks for sharing,
rsabhijith (133) 2014-07-22 9:43
Nice composition here. The mountain with obstructing clouds looks marvelous. Nice colors. The best place anyone can imagine a Church to build. Of course, it's a tribute to those who laid their lives at the World War.
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-07-22 10:31
With a beautiful view in the background I don't I can concentrate in praying in this church. Awesome landscape nicely captured with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

A picturesque snow mountain view which offers a superb backing to main focal of interest - the cute chapel which is appropriately in place. I adore the clarity, colours and contrast with excellent sharpness, a splendid image so well produced. Congrats.
