The church by the shores of the Atlantic
This little place on the Faroe Islands out there in the North Atlantic is called Kirkjebour. A personal and 'wild' transaction of the name (the language is close to old Norwegian) could mean: "The place where you find a church.."
In fact you find 2. This old stone church from around 1300, while there also is ruins of a small older catholic church close by.

Again the typical Faroe setting. Some few houses and farms, maybe population of 20-30 people in the tiny village - still of course their own church. This one, as I understand it, is still in use.. To be found only some 20 minutes outside the small capital of the islands: Torshavn.

oh. yes.. regard the little tree there - a rare thing thing to see on these islands with as good as none trees anywhere..
