Photographer's Note

the church of San Romerio is one of the oldest in the whole Val Poschiavo, but also in the underlying Valtellina (Italy). It has been built in the 10th century and it is situated at more as 1600 m high, at the border of a 500 m high fall just up over the Lago di Poschiavo. It gives a quite nice walk to get there, but as it is used in the mountains, once you're up, you enjoy it.

I could have done more than 30 takes of this place, as the weather was so clear and the contrasts so deep. This is one I like the most. At the bottom you can see the italian Dolomites, but we are standing on the last Alpine line. Things of neighbours... At the right side, down in the shadow lies Bormio and than the fronteer between Switzerland and Italy.
