Photo view to small village of Hospental from the road between St. Gotthard Pass and Andermatt in Swiss Alps at an elevation of 1,470 m a.s.l.
I have taken this photo during my returning from south to north Swizerland.
The village of Hospental is located on the route from Andermatt to St. Gotthard Pass at an elevation of 1,470 m a.s.l. It is the first northern village after St. Gotthard Pass. It has population of 186.
The Catholic Church of Maria Himmelfahrt (see photo) was built in 1705-11. Hospental is first mentioned in 1285 as Hospenthal.

Miro, the tiny village among green tones of grass look very dreamy. Nicely captured :)

Ottimo il pov, il villaggio è proprio bello immerso nel verde, con le sue architetture caratteristiche.
Penso alla tranquillità che si respira in questo luogo, invidio gli abitanti.

nice the view of this section of the village with the characterisric architectural style to be so characterisric.I like the beautiful and green environment that complete the backdrop of the scene.

I see an ancestral jewel set in a green velvet case as protective means!
Private life could be impossible in such a small village!

From the POV shown, the town look as "hiding" under the mountain's slop, Miro.
White and grey tone contrast well onto the green trough further downhill's.
The landscape is hardly typical Swiss, but I reckon seeing places very much in resemblance.
A fine shot over.

You're capturing well this lovely village by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see houses with good structure and the Catholic Church at right center. This village seems to be located in a valley. It's tasteful for green slope with ups and down, too. And, houses with white wall and grey roof is harmonized beautifully with this green slope in the point of entire color balance.

The village is well placed in the frame. The distance between the village and the hills is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the houses and of the church. The good luminosity is enhancing the colours. Have a nice day.

This is a very interesting village with the characteristic buildings tightly packed around the church. You placed the village nicely in the lower part of the composition, just beneath th steep slope, with a large view of the green hillside behind it. The dominance of green and great is very pleasant.

This attractive village is clustered with all the white houses inside the green surrounding. A fine capture with a pleasant balance.

A superb capture of sparsely populated rural village and all really colourful and detailed. It wouldn't be Swiss without the clock on the church tower which is beautifully in this position. The bold patterns and colours are extremely eye-catching against the beautiful green surroundings depicting such a charming landscape which typifies the classic local flavours. Remarkable peaceful shot. Congrats, TFS.

Have a nice day
ourania (35948) 2013-07-31 6:56
a lovely picture from an effective downward point of view that gives you the feeling that you have just made a discovery. Your composition tells us in a simple and comprehensive way a lot about the character of this village and its surroundings. Not only the architecture is picturesque and attractive but the way the grand houses huddle so closely together is very interesting. Your presentation has superb clarity and wonderful colours. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

What a beautiful old village on the slope, lovely local architectures, good bird view shot to frame it, nice greenery environment, thanks for sharing a fascinating view.
Noel_Byrne (27062) 2013-08-01 4:36
A very nice composition that places this beautiful little village in its setting of the green coutryside very well. Nice view looking down the hill over the town, encompassing so much of the beautiful traditional architecture. Nice one!
All the best
fabbs99 (16815) 2013-08-01 5:12
It looks to be a nice and small village in the fold of the green mountain.Very well composed with splendid colors and saturation. The lighting is also amazing as well as perfect high POV too.Excellent composition, good presentation too. Very well done, TFS.
jhm (143573) 2013-08-02 3:28
You chose a very well angle downwards of the village.
The church is a nice addition, certainly as village against the slope.
Excellent composition, nice captured, this is an splendid picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

One of those iconic little villages high up on the Alps. And this is literally in the middle of Switzerland with high mountain passes nearby to south, east and west. I like the way those flowers dot the fields.

Hi dear Miro
Sorry again for my late reaction weekday, so busy for many things.
Another calm and so tranqlized image for tasteful and historical houses via so tasteful color touch in the best composition. Great position and balance you did set, so admirable and marvelous!
Thanks a lot and have a good weekend! Takero

Ciao Miro, great view of lovely village, wonderful colors, splendid light and excellent clarity, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
jcpix (13812) 2013-08-13 14:44
This looks almost too good to be true, somewhat of a fairytale collection of houses with a centerpiece church, all bunched together rather quaintly amongst a vast field in seemingly the middle of nowhere!? :) It's beautiful though, and I really like how you've framed this with the small portion of field along the bottom of the frame, working as a base, while allowing it to open up in space once again above and beyond the tiny village. I know there's only so much the camera lens can encompass, and I envision this to be a vast area of rolling green landscape...simple and appealing to all of the senses. This exudes peace and calm, well done in conveying the scenery. Have a great day ahead.

Very good dominant point of view on the village under a good lights ambiance
adores (40468) 2013-08-21 15:22
It's a nice little village with nice architecture and you framed it very well, from a very good pov. I like to see it surrounded by the green fields and the little road passing near. Very good colours!
Stratt3000 (6) 2013-09-16 15:07
Great vantage point and focal area for the town.
I love the rolling hills - you've captured them very well.
Thanks for sharing!

Your note is very interesting - that's actually a pretty location nowadays, but we must imagine it with large volume of snow during cold seasons !
