At Peace

Einsiedeln is a short drive from Zurich and is perfect for a side trip. The main attraction has to be the Benedictine monastery at which they have horse stables, a winery, and a lumber mill. It is quite an operation. This shot was taken on the back of the grounds where someone was leading a horse up into the surrounding woods, with the fog rolling in this area was incredibly scenic.
