Christmas #2

Though not strictly a "Christmas" image, it still evokes thoughts of chilled Norwegian winters and sleigh rides. This is the Fantoft Stave church in Bergen, Norway. The church was built around the year 1150, and burned down by a Norwegian black metal band in 1992. Thankfully it has been fully restored. An image of the church post-burning was used for the cover of black metal band Burzum's album "Aske" (ashes).
