As promised last week, here is a picture of the whole church, all wood and almost black with age. This church has survived with the least amount of alteration. Throughout Europe there where some 1000 wooden churches built this is one of the 28 left. Fun fact: If you come from the village you can get married here.

Norway is known for it’s wooden churches. This one in Borgund is no exception It dates back to 1183 but the timber used was felled in 1180. My picture shows just some small details of the roof against a stormy sky. I’ll share some shots going forward of the whole building. Until next time…stay safe.
The Twist up close and personal. Even though a lot of this art gallery’s content left me wondering why bother to collect it. The Twist itself is a wonderful building to my mind this was the real work of art I’d come to see.
This is a heavily visited attactraction in a national park about an hours drive from our house. Although it looks really oldies not that ancient really; it was built with stones from the beach in 1932.
I had to do a fair bit of photoshopping to remove the people but the end result looks ok to me.
