Lærdal

One of my favourite places in Norway is the village of Lærdal in the West Country. A lot of the village burnt down a few years ago. Luckily., if you can call it that, it was mostly the modern area that suffered.

Borgund Stavkyrje

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.

Like Dragons in the air

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 is an art gallery about an hours drive from my home here in Norway. I have had plans to photograph it for a while now, but never got my act together to do anything about it. Well, what with all my travel plans for the summer abandoned I had to seek inspiration closer to home.
