A stunning contrast between nature's architecture and human creation. I love that the church spire echos the mountains,. It is such a beautiful building in an amazing setting. I am puzzled that it seems so isolated-is it still in use?

Hmm, I actually don't know but it is definitely maintained so i presume so.

As Cindy says, everything reaches for the sky, church spire, mountain peaks, and trees!  A beautiful scene with the church perfectly placed.  I wouldn't expect anything less.  :)

I actually think it is very much in harmony with the nature around, instead of being in contrast.

It appears to be well maintained and therefore it's probably still in use. Most likely for weddings and baptisms.
