Lom Stave Church Fossbergom Oppland county, Norway
These medieval wooden churches dotted around Norway certainly stand as a testament to the brilliant workmanship of their builders back in the late 12th century. Although, certainly not as grand or imposing as most cathedrals and basilica found in other parts of Europe. I find myself personally drawn to the stave church unique architecture and detailed craftsmanship.
Having been driving in miserable rainy conditions most of the day, a clear patch of skies came into view as we approach Lom. Originally intended as an unscheduled toilet break, I happened to park in front of this lovely church. The sides of the wooden structure were illuminated by the late afternoon sun which caught my eye. Just as I was strolling around with my camera looking for an interesting composition, a giant rainbow appeared in the valley behind the church. It provided the added element that I was hoping for to compliment the beautiful scene. Perhaps it was an act of god or just plain luck, I am glad to be at the right place at the right time to capture this image!
