Photographer's Note

Outside it's - 2°C, therefore back to summer...

This is the church Maria Magdalena in the small village Gargellen, high up in a side valley of Montafon valley in the Austrian state Vorarlberg. Gargellen, in an altitude of 1400 metres, was first mentioned in the year 1411 and today 110 inhabitants live here all the year round. It is a popular holiday destination in a beautiful impressive landscape which is famous for its wild flowers in the meadows around.

The first church here was built in 1615, but it already was destroyed in 1622. The new building was completed in 1644 and the clock tower was added in 1793.

In workshop you can see the church from another angle and the interior of St. Maria Magdalena with the baroque pulpit from 1793 and its three altars.
