Your architectural eye and great sense of composition is very evident here, Chris! Love the POV, the great light...and what a magnificent building - you can really see the structure of the basalt columns that informs this design. #10384519

Thank you, Rona! It was a remarkable building to visit and photograph---and yet another place where I wished I'd had 2-3 hours to do it justice! #10384955

At 244 feet, the Hallgrímskirkja church tower dominates the Reykjavik skyline. The 3 openings near the top provide a fantastic observation deck;
a set of bells is also housed there. The architect's inspiration was the hexagonal basalt columns that thrust upward from the ground all around Iceland.
