Church by the Sea


Photo Information
This small wooden Church is situated at the south end of the Jæren region near Stavanger, Norway, just off the North Sea and is called the "Varhaug gamle kyrkje" (Varhaug old Church). The churchyard dates back to the middle ages, and the first church was raised here about 1200 AD. The current chapel was built in 1951, and is only 15 square meters large. The roof is fitted with roof tiles that reflect light in an unusual way.

Love the colours

Even though I grew up in Stavanger, I have never heard about this place until I googled for photo locations in this region. In a way I am a tourist in my own home town Consequently I have never been to this Church during wintertime, but I am sure you are correct in your assumptions.

The simplicity of it makes this a very compelling image. Nice one!
