This is the old monastery located adjacent to the Roman Catholic Church.
Interlaken’s former monastery complete with castle and castle church is situated close to the town centre.
The first mention of Interlaken’s Augustinian monastery in an official document dates back to 1133. After the Reformation c. 1525, ownership of the entire monastery complex was transferred to the state of Bern, and the monastery was converted into a hospital. Religious services were held only as of 1841. The bell tower of the former monastery church dates from the early 14th century. The Gothic cloister gallery in the former monastery courtyard with its chapel dating from 1452 are well worth seeing. (Interlaken.ch)

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the monastery. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

A composition that perfectly suits the vertical format with the slender church tower nicely framed by the adjacent trees. I like the light and shadow play in the bottom part of the image and the calm and peaceful atmosphere.

Un très beau cadrage vertical qui suit bien la ligne du clocher dans le paysage, à partir des ombres au niveau inférieur et de la très belle lumière en haut. Le cadre fournit par les arbres de chaque côté est parfait.

This very nice clock tower stands well over the blue sky and you have framed it quite well with the trees. The play of light and shadow is interesting with sharp details.

A sensational POV, capturing the beautiful tower of this church, framed by the branches of trees, high mountains behind, with a beautiful complement to this mountain population.
Very nice range of colors.
Superb management of both the brightness and sharpness.
Well seen and done better. I like it
Have a good weekend.

I think I have been to this place before. The architecture is very charming and typically Swiss. The gorgeous mountains in the BG confirm this for us. Beautiful colours, sharpness and depth.
Cricri (105369) 2014-10-05 4:45
Une très belle présentation de l'église joli avec les branches des arbres, le bleu du ciel et la belle lumière
tyro (20050) 2014-10-20 15:12
What an interesting note you have given us as well as a delightful photograph to illustrate it.
Such a typical Swiss scene, the tall slender tower of the church beautifully depicted against a backdrop of magnificent mountains. Your composition is perfect with all elements very pleasingly arranged within the frame: the light and colours are lovely, your exposure perfect and the details and sharpness are exquisite.
