Some time ago we were invited to a wedding service in the village church of Aastrup in Denmark. This is a typical Danish village church, except that they are normally red or white. This one immediately struck me as the Big Pink house of God. It actually dates back to the 12th century and I searched the Internet for detailed information on it, but couldn't find any. The inside of the church contains some of the most beautiful medieval wall paintings in Denmark, and there are funny details such as the remnants of a door for women (yes, in medieval Denmark men and women used separate doors for entering the house of worship). I may come back and post some of those details later - and even a picture of the happy couple, bride from Denmark, groom from Canada, so in many ways a TE event.
It was a lovely day, so I have only filtered with NI and resized for the web.

Ce rose est vraiment surprenant et magnifique et qu'il s'accorde bien avec le bleu du ciel.
Belle photo bi-color, très bien équilibrée

Interesting composition - the church looks like a Lego building, but doesn't Lego come from Denmark anyway?

Interesting capture. It's definitely not your typical type of colouring for a Danish village church, but the church itself has a nice shape and good details. Have you ever seen the postbox red one on the way from Sjællands Odde to Roskilde (don't know the name of the place)?

Very unusual coulour of a chuch - at least in "my part" of Denmark - You did a good job here Per - I like the fine details and the angle you got this rather big church in - the wedding party add extra to the image - thanks for sharing and for the theme you made - I must make some contribution soon.

What an amazing perspective and "Cosmic" sky. I like the slight lens distortion and the contrast between the blue and the pink hues. Beautiful shot, Per.
