The Kapuzinerkloster monastry and Kapuzinerkirche church are located on a mountain facing the old town of Salzburg: the Kapuzinerberg mountain, named after the abbey. It was a long walk and I was impressed by this old monk, climbing without troubles all those stairs.

Sabine my friend you have done such a good job on this one. I feel it is very special. Why I'm not sure but it really touches me my friend. Faving it too because of this feeling it gives me. Your post has touched me! Isn't that what its really about and this has done that. >< I have to add that i'm not a religous person either. ♪ ♫ :)sandi ♪ ♫ ♪

Excellent composition Sabine! I love the way you captured this monk coming down the stairs. Including the item in the foreground adds just a little more color to this also. Nice capture! C):-)

THE CAMERA'S ONLY JOB is to get out of the way of making photographs. It's entirely an artist's eye, patience, and skill that makes an image. ~Ken Rockwell VISIT MY GALLERY

This is a well-executed photo, so it would have been a pretty interesting shot even without the monk. But with him in it, descending those stairs, it takes the image to a much higher level. One of your best ever, I think.

How beautiful! Instant "my favorites" with a high mark on the voting booth too. It seems as if the time has stopped on this photo... Well done! :)

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

Thanks for this, especially with the monk in it. It really adds to the photo, again, into my favorites. ;-)

Very nice. This shot is well composed. I get a real feeling for this place and what this man's life must be like.

Beautiful composition Sabine, and I have to say quite peaceful to view these photos of the Monks and Monestary life. Great shot.

Without the Monk standing there the photo would be meaningless. One person can make the difference.
