    Did you post photos of this church some time ago, perhaps after your visit last year. I cant' find them now. I followed the tags, but only this photo appears. Sure we discussed how cool it looks.
  • Leif and Evonne 6y


    Yes, we did--we were there exactly a year before this photo was taken. I had looked for it last night myself, and couldn't find it. I must have tagged it differently. :\


    Edit: This is all I could find from last year.

    Much weaker photo. lol--I think there were a lot of people in the shot at ground level.

    Phew. Thought I was imagining things. Good to know I've not completely destroyed my mind under the weight of pointless science facts.

    This is the photo I remembered;
    Stavkirke (Stave-Church) by darling.clandestine

    (The perils of mis-tagging. A lesson to us all I think :-P )
  • Leif and Evonne 6y

    Ah-ha! You know our photostream better than I do. I've titled that other one just in case. :P
