There has been a small parish church here since 1703; this building is the fourth. It sits quite near the beach on the southern coast
of the Snaefellsnes peninsula, 75 miles north of Reykjavik, as the puffin flies, but a 3 hour drive otherwise.

Wonderful lines, angles, light & shadow, Chris! This is somehow charming and striking at the same time.

Thank you, everyone! I'm thrilled this grabbed the judges' eyes, as I was hesitant about the composition, since so much of it is the foreground shadow cast by the tiny church. I stood on a low stone wall to get a slightly elevated perspective.

Neat composition, Chris - and congrats on the Finalist award.

It looks like a very serene, peaceful place to worship - or take photos.
