Photograph of a street leading to a church and other buildings beyond in the snow-covered village of Grindelwald. The church’s bell tower, which incorporates a clock, is the tallest edifice in the frame. The mountainsides of Wetterhorn and the Wengernalp meadow can be seen in the background, while bare trees intersperse the scenery.
