Photographer's Note

Back when I was the happy owner of a pocket camera I liked to take pictures when I was driving hmmm… DSLR made this awkward and even more dangerous, and I don’t know what happened to my trusty little friend – I have to get another small camera again!

This is the cathedral in my hometown Trondheim as seen from the bridge crossing the river Nidelven. The red roofs near the church is the ancient castle of the Archbishop, now serving mostly as a museum.

Work on the cathedral started in 1070 and was finished sometime around 1300. From history we learn that the cathedral was badly damaged by fires in 1327, 1531 and in 1708.

The last major rebuilding and restoration of the cathedral started in 1869, initially led by architect Heinrich Ernst Schirmer and completed by Christian Christie. The cathedral was officially completed in 2001, after more than 900 years of construction…

The workshop image shows the location from an elevated point of view.

Name of the church in Norwegian: Nidarosdomen
