Very serene.I like the composition of the photograph, with the barren trees and the snow and just a hint of blue in the sky.Looks like a very beautiful church from outside; and I am sure it is inside as well.;)

Protege, it is one of Norway\’s oldest stone churches and is decorated in a Gothic and Cathelic style inside.An(n)onymous, we were in domkirken. I don\’t think we went inside Mariakirken at all.Thanks, Nicole! I see this view every time I go to the hair dresser\’s. 🙂

Nice. The humans used to build some really gorgeous buildings. I might feel a little more charitable toward contemporary christians if they still built beautiful churches, instead of the cheap box-with-a-steeple buildings they erect these days…
