Beam of Light

Sunlight pierces though a heavy sky to create a rainbow over Hopperstad Stave Church in Vik, Norway.


From Wiki: This church was built around the year 1130. The Stave churches are constructions of high quality, richly decorated with carvings. In virtually all of them the door frames are decorated from top to bottom with carvings. This tradition of rich ornamentation appears to go back to the animal carvings of the Viking Age. The stave church doorways are among the most distinctive works of art to be found in Norway. However, it is difficult to connect them with the Christian gospel.
