Photographer's Note

Since Jean Yves Internet connection is still out, my little contribution to his sundays posts...


On the border between Italy and Austria lies the Reschenpass, 1504 m.
It was decided to build a barrage their to produce electicity in the late '30ies. It was only finished in 1950.
A complete village has been sacrified, only the tower of the San Petro church emerges from the water, the rest has been destroyed.

In the background, the higest point of the Tyrolean Alps, the Ortler, 3905 m.
